Penny For Your Thoughts (Hospital food)

Posted by CFMBabs , 27 April 2009 · 1,040 views

My thanks are to Penny for the time she has spent
For every last word, I knew what she meant
Hospital food leaves a lot to be desired
If I had my way the chef would be fired
For I've spent some time in a bed on a ward
And mealtimes came round at times it was hard
I can no longer eat and although it's a shame
I had a lucky escape all the same

You don't have to eat this muck one said
As she pushed it away from her bed
I thought I was hungry but boy when it came
I think it was some animal they shot when lame
It resembled some dish I threw in the bin
And if I had one here this would go in

The smell wafted ominously down the hall
It stunk like something I'd never smelled at all
Wasn't vegetable or mineral in fact is was rank
And all the day after the smell still stank
Like over cooked cabbage and burned greasy fat
Who in their right minds would want to eat that?
We're in hospital for treatment or because we're not well
If we were alright before, we'd be ill with the smell

So I know what you mean, fellow blogger, my friend
I've seen patient's faces as the meal back they send
And all they can muster is a blob of ice cream
Instead of a meal, "Oh no!" they scream
For the ice cream had melted and gone all funny
No need for a spoon for it was so runny
So I guess it don't matter which hospital you go
Take your own lunch, it's safer you know!
