    dotsLurking Behind the Doordots

    There's a place so dark and damp
    where, for weeks, no one did tramp.
    Without light and always cold,
    it's a place that's known for mold.

    I did fear to look inside
    at what must be putrefied.
    Leaves of lettuce, slimy yuck,
    dark green bread would be my luck!
    There'd be oranges, shriveled, hard,
    in the fruit bin boulevard;
    and the stuff that once was meat
    now'd resemble brown concrete.

    Hold my breath and open wide;
    take a look and shallow pride.
    What's the fuzzy, yellow pile?
    Mashed potatoes looking vile!
    There's an odor I detect
    that does reek of sheer neglect.
    It's the rotting tuna fish
    on a little, plastic dish.

    There's a price to pay for fun,
    and I face what must be done.
    Love of travel must be how
    I forgot the "frig"...'til now!

      Haha! I must say, this is rather cute, and has a somewhat innocent appeal to it. The rhyme scheme is simple, as is the rhythm, but in this the simplicity adds to the anxiety upon going to the fridge. It sounds like a college dorm gone wrong.

      Heh, heh! Reminds me of the "frig" when I was young, unmarried, and shared an apartment with a couple of batchelor roommates!!! Cute write, Sharon!

      This was pretty funny, taking something so common about food and giving its own kind of twist. I don't see really nothing about this piece. well hope to hear from ya .
