Perfectly Good Cash In The Trash
Went to the grocery store, mindfully chose ingredients,
Stood in line, carried bags home; and
Paid their gas, electric, and hot water bills to
Clean the tools and utensils for preparing and serving; and
Spent the time to cook
The food you just thoughtlessly threw away.
*If that someone is lucky to have a home and a job.
