WHAT ARE YOU EATING: WHAT'S EATING YOU?!





I Had A Little Taste Bud
Which Knew
That Little - With God In It -
Brought The Soul To The Land Of
Contentment!

My Lil' Taste Bud Was Quite Happy
Until The Day He Met Wide Eyes
And From Then
My Lil' Taste Bud Thought Contentment
Was Just Lack Of Enough
Being Self-Satisfying
Through No-Further-Prospect's
Eyes!

I Couldn't Convince Him!
He Would Not Be Pacified 
So
I Gave Him Free Reign
AND THEN
Woe!
Lord Have Mercy!
Lil' Taste Bud
Was Suffering From
Over-Indulgence
AND
Cast Resist Temptation
AND
Get More
Butterflies!

But, Then

One Fateful Day
I Met
Resist The Devil!
Take What You Want!
AND
Pay For It
AND
The Scales Fell From My Eyes
AND
I Knew - Without A Single Doubt -
That Obese Lil' Taste Bud Big
Was Going On "The Diet!"
No Matter How Much He Wailed 
AND
Cried!
He Was Getting A Fig Dried!

Take What You Want!
AND
Pay For It!
Indulged In The Pleasure Principle
AND
They Did Not Give A Flying Fat Farm
If You Ended Up In The Hospital
... Or Dead!

These Awful, Awful Creatures
Practiced Not What They Preached
For
Present Death Was Not Yet Their's To Hold
For
They Worked For That
Undead, Dying, Murdering
Lying, Infelicitous Creep Satan
Who Was
The God Of The Earth
But Was A
The God-Of-All Wannabe!
Only God - Not Appetite - Could Kill Them!

I Listened Well
To Their Contrived Stories
Of Feelings
AND
Tastes
- Vile And Glorious -
Until They  Lauded Chocolate Cockroach
(I Started Changing Skin Color)
BUT
When They Spoke Of
Eating Hu-Man
I Threw Up
AND
Looked Up
AND
Called Out Loudly
For The Holy Son Of Man!

Lord Jesus,
Please Save Me
From Outrageous
Raging Appetite!
Make My Appetite Tight
For
It Is Now Slack
And
Satan And His Minions
Are Riding Herd On
My Poor Breaking Back!
My Stomach Hurts!
Help Me Win This Unequal Fight!


Close Your Eyes!
Say Your Grace!
And
Back Away From The Plate!
Little With Contentment
Is Great Gain
But
Greed Is A Wide Open Gate!

Eat For Strength
And
Not For Drunkenness
And
By Grace
Know When Enough Is Enough
And
Stop Letting Your Eyes
Fill Your Plate
For
Your Bad Habits
Did Your Eyes Habituate!


I Understood
AND
I Did
From That Great Plate
Walk Away
For
It Was Filled To Overflowing
AND
Had Not A Fruit
A Vegetable
Not Even A Sweet Date!

I Thought Of Eve!
I Thought On The Garden Of Eden!
All The Fruit In The Garden Was Good For The Eating
BUT
The Fruit Of The Tree Of Good And Evil Was Not!

I Thought On The Tempter
Vile Creature He
Who Stills Tempts
AND
Torments
Trying Valiantly
To Create Many And More Eve's!

I Thought On The Savior!
I Thought On The Cross!
I Thought Of The Bruise On Christ's Heel
AND
I Rejoiced In The Knowledge That
Jesus Christ Crushed Satan's Covetous Head
AND
I Repented Of The Evil
AND
Praying
Went To
- For A First Time In A Long Time -
A Contented In Christ Soul's Bed!

We Are What We Eat!
We Become Like Where We Choose To Sleep!
We Fill A Half-Pound Stomach
With
Two Gallons Three Four
Full Of Food
Unnourishing
Unsavory
Indigestible
And Still Ask
When's The Next Meal?!
When Are We Going To Eat?!

Lil' Pidgeon's Got Wide Ear Holes!
So
Be The Pidgeon
AND
Hear What Your Real Stomach Says
AND
You Will Not
Over The Porcelain Goddess
Have To Preach A Sermon
AND
Then Have To Beseech The Living God
To Take Your Rebuke Away!

Some Live For Clothes!
Some Live For Food!
Some Live For Sex
Lies
AND
Unsavory Ties
AND
Some Live For Love Of Other
Than He Who For Us Died
On The Cross!
Check Your Self
So That You Don't
- By Self-Indulgence -
Suffer
The Eternal Loss!
