A creature steps off the bus

It is nervous

Yet is eager to learn

In a place they call school

.

The creature looks around

At all the people

And tries to find others

With the same interests

.

The bell for lunch rings

It gets food and finds a seat

But people are shocked and say

"You're eating?"

"Again?"

.

Was it not supposed to?

Was it eating too much?

.

There was a dance team

The creature loved it

And wanted to join

Laughing they said

"This is a dance team

Not a jiggle team"

.

Upon returning home

The creature tossed

Half of the food

It had

.

Food was the root

Of all evil

It's gluttony they said

So the creature only ate

Out of necessity

.

The creature looks

In the mirror

But doesn't see

The skeleton of a girl

Looking back
