Counting Down and Five Days to Go

Counting down and five days to go

Will I lose my mind? Nobody knows

Thoughts of sugar and caffeine grow

Fragrance of chicken and dumplings blow

Through Mama’s house, cooking on the stove

Leftovers brought home to stow

For a snack when I get hungry, yo

Enjoying meat before I enter that plant-based flow

How much will I miss it, time will show
