My early last meal…

It was too good, I’m sorry to say

too good for an ordinary meal

in the middle of an ordinary week.


The meat was too tender and tasty,

the vegetables too crisp and right

and the wine too right and aged.


Many kings have lived and died

and not eaten this well, I thought

and I am not and will never be one.


This could have, should have

been my last meal and testament;

I will never eat this well again.


I now live the life of the condemned

with time between meal and Maker

to live on in satiated dissatisfaction.
