Ode to Breakfast

It’s almost dawn with bills paid, assignments answered, and six poems just accrued.
So I’m feeling rather peckish for some tasty, yet admittedly caloric, sustaining food.
Just right now, I’m feeling famished, longing for a kolache or perhaps a little Danish.
Waffles, some scrambled eggs, a bit of ham; oh, that I might top a croissant with jam!
But rummaging through the refrigerator, a healthy meal I might justifiably forsake
Since I now see a leftover pepperoni pizza, a bag of taco chips, and chocolate cake.
I’m a gourmand I must confess, for I’ve been known to gorge myself on less than best.
But should I load my plate with what I please if I can into my pair of jeans barely squeeze?
