Hoping for Hot Soup

by Flo Deems
::: ::: :::

Standing, shivering, with stomachs growling

They wait, lined up early to be first

In line, hoping for hot soup.

Today will there will be meat in the soup?

Today will the soup be thick with vegetables

Even if there is no meat?

Hoping the soup won't be thin,

Just broth and onions or potatoes,

Like yesterday.

No matter how thick or how thin,

Late arrivals may get no soup.
