Table Neighbours

We sit around at breakfast.
There's one thinks she's in charge.
At heart I wish this one of five
Were somewhere else, at large.

How would our dear Lord handle this?
He lived with people too.
Dear Lord I pray for guidance.
I don't know what to do.

My instincts and Thy way to cope
I think are opposite
I need Thy presence there with me
So I can handle it.

Yesterday Tom brought me grapes
They're green and have no seeds.
Everything is laid on here
So I have no real needs.

But when I come back to my room
I can relax a bit.
The grapes are quite delicious
I have them while I sit.

They're juicy as a cup of tea
Delicious as a peach.
The room is small so when I sit
They are in easy reach.

It turned out that mother got two lunches that day with no big meal. She will fill out the menu form more carefully next time.
