Civilised food approvals

 

Should we photograph what we eat?

A la carte with a Snapchat filter,

The fast food Facebook update,

Not forgetting those Twitter teas,

And those WhatsApp sneaky whiskeys.

I wonder what would happen if everyday,

Every meal, every morsel,

Had to be documented in this very way.

Would the biscuit tin make a fashion comeback,

Or those basic soldiers with their dippy eggs ways.

If I shared what I ate,

Amusement it would bring,

To document the in-between eating,

You know those child left-overs that you can’t bear to waste,

That cake mix that can’t wait until baked to have a taste.

The 3am snacks because you can’t sleep,

The t.v is on, so let’s just eat.

The ‘I’ve had a hard day’ bag full of sweets,

Deliberately buying something only you

In your household would ever eat.

Hiding the treats out of child sight,

Heck, who am I kidding,

If it’s not photo shared,

The calories don’t count right?

Should we photograph what we eat?

A hot meal accomplished by a parent this decade,

The sneaky raid into the Christmas sweets,

An array of food a child has not refused to eat,

My food is crying out for a social following,

A food hashtag trending,

Perhaps we should all crash the internet,

With pictures of what we eat.
