Among Strangers

Cheesy tuna pesto with black olives and garlic chips
Spoon out portions after benediction, welcome
Foodie to the kitchen, best place for a chat
Pass the hat, wayward brat weakened
Open table to strangers, eating
Together is peacemaking
Much like smoking
The peacepipe
Among
Strangers
Who talk a
Different tongue
In food found a friend
Make amends, pacify in
Agreement over food flavors
Whether chicken, fish or vegetable
Pass the bowl, second servings allowed
Just make sure the plate is full, smack your
Lips to show pleasure, chef's delight is empty store

Hi Bernard, you know this be true. The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach, no matter his culture. Thank you for your appreciation.: -)
Hi Bernard, you know this to be true. Food makes us peaceful and sociable, no matter our culture. Another interpretation would be that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Thank you for your appreciation.: -)
