Where did you spend your money this year?

Mashed potatoes with the mushroom gravy
Chinese takeout
Largest pot of spaghetti
Soup (vegetarian)
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.
