Next Warm Meal

We crumble crackers in our soup
the way we drop change
in a beggar's empty Pepsi cup.

So much said in so little words. A cause to ponder those things we do without so much as a thought.

It seems like it's soup season :)

I like this - lots of subtle links - beggars / soup kitchens, and regional too - I don't think we do the crackers with soup here as much as you do in the US, although its a familiar image from books / films.
