Order no. unknown~ Verse First

Food?
Ay caramba!
Do we eat to live?
or live to eat?
the latter's more true
Damn! I feel 'em blues
when I wait at the cafe
with a book in hand
face hidden behind it,
eyes following the waitress
carrying a plate of brownies
in one hand,
the eyes follow her around
like a tiger targeting the prey
laying low on the ground.
she passes me once
Twice
Thrice!
and there she comes
with a silly smile on her face
she sets down the plate on the table
and now I can eat with panache & grace.

This one's supposed to be humorous. Hope it's good enough!
