A Note On The Fridge

Dear brother,
I know you are hungry.
This is just to say
Please don't open the freezer
For there is nothin in there
It's empty.
And opening it
Would only add annoyance
To your hunger.

Arsiema, this is a lovely and touching piece. You put the question: 'Why make matters worse? ' so tenderly.
