Food is Good, Food is Nice

Food is good,
food is nice.
But so is wood
and so are mice,
if you’re a carpenter

or cat, respectively.
And come to that,
(if come to that
we have),

what salve does that
sad creature
at your knee seek
to assuage his real
or metaphoric injury –

while you consume
your sandwich?
Is there something
than which 
there's no better solace

than a sandwich
to appease him?
Perhaps. But it’s not
up to you
to please him.
