The microwave is heating up

My last meal of the day…

Leftover chili and a grilled cheese sandwich

Made at home, by the way.

Both had been in the refrigerator

And so were properly “aged…”

Sour-dough rye on the side

And cold coffee are the rage ( ! )

It’s not great verse but it will do,

Nutritious at the very least…

So excuse me a moment while I dig in

To a Security Guard’s fine feast.
