November Verse 9

November Verse 9: Breakfast
While monks on waking go to chapel,
my morning rite is to make juice
from beetroot, carrot, ginger, apple,
celery each day to unloose
what needs unloosing, supplemented –
so ailments may be circumvented –
by multi-probiotic pills
and others for existing ills.
And then, before a cup of java,
there’s sometimes muesli, mostly toast
that’s spread with jam, and, not to boast,
the jam’s from cumquat and guava
grown on our trees and made by me.
This is our daily Glory Be!
