1173 – Running on Empty

Running on Empty
Give that hippo a sandwich, stat!

I might waste away

I think that I might waste away
if I don’t find some food to eat.
Although I’d love a large buffet,
I’d take one tiny tasty treat.

I’m losing weight the more I wait.
I’m feeling faint and soon may swoon,
but still there’s nothing on my plate…
Oh please say dinner’s ready soon!

My stomach groans – I hear it fuss.
I only need one little bite.
Our dinner is asparagus?!
No thanks. I’ve lost my appetite.
