How Lucky We Are

We gather together
A mockery of hunger
To eat and to indulge
As often as our excuses will allow

For every celebration,
Holidays and birthdays,
We fill ourselves to the brim
Until the next bite could be our last

With songs and merriment
And rivers flooded with wine;
Basking in the afterglow
Of our mutual greed and satisfaction

Somewhere far away
Another family rejoices
For today, after many months,
There has at last been rain again

How easily
We forget
How lucky we are.
