Ugh, I don't want that devil's food cake.
No more of that junk food.
I want the good stuff,
the REAL Good stuff,
the kind that only comes from heaven.

I got me a taste of heaven;
I tasted a cake
made with real Love, all natural.
It's no secret ingredient,
only the best.

Wanna know where I got a cake so good?
I ordered it from heaven's hotline,
and it came right on time.
It ain't shipped in a box labeled "fragile".
No. It's a special delivery from the Lord Himself.

I quit that ol' devil's danger diet
and I signed up for
the holy health plan,
where eternal life tastes oh-so-sweet.
I lost all that weight on my shoulders.

It comes with a sampling of bread
and a side of wine
that is oh-so-divine.

Since then I've been eating at Christ's Cafe.
It's an all-you-can-eat buffet,
all for free;
the Manager paid for me in full.
His name is Jesus, I recommend Him.

Their food is SO Good,
I had to get myself a copy of their recipe book.
It's got everything you need.
Try the Psalm Soup
or the Proverbs Supreme.

On the go?
There's the Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John Deal.
But I say eat right in,
and bring some friends.
There's plenty of seats for everyone.

So no more eating those nasty sin pies;
those were made with lies,
and they clog your arteries.
Do yourself a favor
and feed on some Spiritual Food.



(Oh, and did you know? Satan's Diner is going out of business.)
This is a poem that came to me as I woke up this morning.

This entire poem is a metaphor for choosing a life in Christ over sin. And what more a fun way to describe a transformed life than with food!

All this has been making me hungry...for TRUTH!

Haha, very cute extended metaphor! :) And that last line was an unexpected grin at the end.

As one poet can say to another- well done. I really enjoy the choice of words and the way you played them out in your poem. It sounds as if it has it's own melody in between each word. Well done.

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
