Peaceful Spaghettios

Proverbs 17:1

Better is a dry morsel and quietness with it than a house full of feasting with strife.


They sat down to spaghettios and kool aid for many dinners

but you would have a tough time convincing them they weren’t winners

‘cause though their portions were modest at best

they were able to realize the infinite amount they were blessed

for as they held hands in their studio shack

an inner peace assured them they had no lack

though others might not understand what it was they partook of

they both knew they were feasting on love


They sat down to surroundings both rich and fine

and consistently enjoyed the richest food and choicest wine

but despite the exquisite furnishings one must note

that she would just as soon put a knife to his throat

there was no peace in the house day or night

there was no limit to their ability to fuss and fight

on the outside they were perfect and life was a ball

but the inside was cold and barren and they had nothing at all
