Tummy's Temper Tantrum (Ready to Rumble)-inspired by Tracy: Power of 10

This entry is part of The Power of 10 Poetic Exercise.  The words in bold are the words Tracy (aka Mahogany Dymond) selected for me to use as part of the poem.



Not caring about the world,
slightly immersed in the blue sky,
I hear a very strange noise
and realize I haven't eaten tonight,
but to be fair, I was feeling sleepy;
my eyes told my body, "Take a nap."
Now my tummy's kind of ticked off"
"ooh, chile, you gone pay for that!"

I munched on some white grapes,
but they just wouldn't do!
What can authentically
get this hungry feeling subdued?

Okay, let me chill out
as I go to the kitchen;
perhaps steak with onion and gravy,
except the onion's missing!

So I decided on some fried chicken,
mashed potatoes and some peas
along with some refreshing sweet iced tea--
very glad the tummy is finally pleased!
