Poetry: “Can of soup”

Compare, contrast, be happy for the small things you can easily procure for yourself.

***~***~***~***

Can of soup

A can of soup
Such a trifle
Cheapest fare
For a late day
Turning into night
Tumbling home after dark
Growling with hunger
And no time for food
Or effort to do much
Besides a can of soup

A can of soup
A luxury
Warm and hearty
Filling a cold body
Inside and out
Warming hands as well
Chafed by cold and dirt
Huddling under blankets
Found in someone’s trash
And then, as well that wonder
An unopened can of soup
