TV Dinners


My evening meals are always very carefully chosen

Because variety and taste express the gourmet way.

So I choose one that is within my freezer, frozen,

Waiting in a small black plastic dinner tray.

While I eat my dinner which I've freshly microwaved,

After pushing the empty cardboard box aside,

It feels good to consider the time and money saved,

And I'm glad there are no dishes to be washed and dried,

But when my food looks different from what the package shows,

I try to convince myself that the way I cook is right.

"It can't be wrong if it's gourmet," so my thinking goes.

"Who do I think I'm kidding? I'll be eating out tonight!"
