Where did you spend your money this year?
Mashed potatoes with the mushroom gravy
Largest pot of spaghetti
Macaroni from a box
Wine. Bottles on bottles.
A general principle:
That food carries friends closer
A glass or three in good company
Can do more than many church services.
So I trade money for flour and butter
And barter sustenance for companionship
To fill their stomachs and my soul.
