Table Manners

whatever you bring to the table

never take it for granted

that all who sit intend to dine

or that those who indulge

will enjoy all that they find.

some who participate

are too intent on requiring

what is not on the menu

at this particular time.

when it comes to taste,

life won’t always serve

what suits your palate,

biting off more than one can chew

is just a bad habit.

learn your portions

and know your share,

mind your manners

and dine with care.
