Ration (an acrostic poem)

Image: potatoes.com/images/resources/types/TAP_Red.png

Reaching into the sack, he handed his daughter a small potato

And her look of disappointment hurt his heart so much

That was the best he could do, at least she would have something in her tummy tonight

If he could do more, he would

Only if he gave her more now, she would go without later that week

Now to bully his hunger into being quiet until he got her to bed

Snack (an acrostic poem)

Silently my stomach ambushes me

Not giving me a chance to finish making my meal

All I can think of is how much I want to eat something, anything

Candy soon fills my pie hole, ruining my dinner, but still

Killing my hunger dead in its tracks

Hunger (an acrostic poem)

Hurrying down the path, Corry tried to keep his stride even

Underneath all his calm, cool, and collected there was an emptiness

Now he was so close he could taste his release

Giving into his desire, he consumed the last hundred meters

Entering the boathouse he pulled out his rowing shell, savoring the feel of the oars

Rowing was the only thing that satisfied him
