While on vacation in Georgia…doing our camping thing

we heard a Medieval tale…of the one they call the Donut King.


This was not a Donut Earl or Duke or Viscount of whom the people sing

no these tales told of donuts made in Alabama…by a King.


They spoke of donuts so delectable …so mouthwatering and light…

that people travel from the 4 corners of the world…just to have a bit.


So we rose early one morning…as curious adventurers are wont to do

and we traveled back in time (1 hour) to Alabama

to see if these tales were true.


We saw the sign and immediately…then we stopped and parked the car.

The Donut King’s castle was old and weathered…as sometimes castles are.


But once inside the aroma engulfed us

and we thought of all the donut places we have roamed…

here in Eufaula, Alabama…our donut lust has found a home.


When the fair maiden behind the counter found out it was our first time

her smile met our gaze

then she handed us a free sample…still warm and dripping with glaze.


Deborah and I looked at each other and together we both knew it….

This was the best donut we ever tasted…

only I forgot to chew it.


We began ordering donuts quickly…now in Medieval donut heaven

and when we finally looked inside the box…we ended up with seven.


We took them to the parking lot and as we ate them we started to sing….

realizing here in Alabama…we were in the presence of the king.

My Favorite Foods

I can eat my favorite breakfast alone...

eggs cooked the way I’ve loved them all my life...

but breakfast always tastes a little better

when I eat...next to my wife.


I can eat my favorite lunch alone...

A Philly Cheesesteak that never ends...

but lunch always tastes a little better

when I’m eating it...with friends.


I can eat my favorite dinner alone...

A steak and potato cooked just for me...

but dinner always tastes a little better

when I eat...with my family.


I can eat cake on my birthday alone...

I can sing happy birthday...sing my name...

but without people gathered ‘round me

that cake wouldn’t taste the same.


Yes, I can eat food by myself

and I know that I will thrive

but when I eat with friends and family

I know that I’m alive.


I once thought my taste buds decided my favorite foods

but perhaps that’s just a myth...

Perhaps what makes them my favorite foods....


is who I eat them with.

This is a funny poem, and in no way am I a poet. It was written in a class period when I had nothing else to do. Don't take it too seriously.Tongue Out

My ode to Low vibration food

My Ode To Low Vibration Food

Low vibration foods are those
That drag you down I suppose
Not hard to work them out
Which foods drag you down
Foods of a low vibration


I am sat here at Avebury
Things vibrate much higher
When they are fluffy and lighter
When things are weighed right down
It slows your vibration down
Made worse by eating pig or cow


So with this spectrum in mind
Can you work out foods: Light
You think porridge every day
Is going to make you fluffy
And light; answer no: Your right


What about other cereal foods
Right again, they weigh on you
Breakfast is bad for you anyway
Still processing food from previous day
Fast till lunch; push a pen: Easy


So you managed without breakfast today
Then what's on the lunch menu daily
Sandwiches, pastry: low vibration
Regardless of what's inside them
That's better, slap up lunch: Brunch

But brunch is as good as breakfast

And would you struggle to last?
But if lunch has a slice of meat
To digest it all, would take you to tea
M eat is low vibration, make it history

Cos when that pig, cow or lamb
Sees it's friends killed with a bolt gun

It’s not very happy when it dies
And this vibration passes to your body
Still want to eat meat? Not for me!

Come alive, live on death: Mushroom s
They are well low vibration too

You may be asking yourself if there is
An y food left to eat at all
Fresh pasta, rice: most vegetables

Fresh fish and eggs too, but no dairy
Cheeses, milk, no good for you and me
And you c an prove it to yourself
The next time you brew some tea

We are 85% water, you and me

You put the milk in with the bag
And top your cup with water
Does the flavour flood out?
I bet it’s not like it ought ta
So its advisable to stick to water


Anti-biotics in farm animals too
Kill any potential bodily gains: true
Think what you are about to eat
And whether it was at peace
Before it became a slab of meat
