New routes home –

Going abroad alone –

And practice of talking to strangers

They tell us are things detrimental


Juicy red meat –

Fried foods that we eat –

And the amount we drink

Too are things – detrimental


But to see only the same street –

Never a new person to meet –

Bland diets with no treats –

Is this to real life, not detrimental?




Thank you Fandango for the excellent prompt: Detrimental

  1. Okay, before anyone cries “foul,” I acknowledge that I am a teetotal pescetarian. I am an avid traveler and one who enjoys good food, however, so the sentiment and the thrust of the poem is from the heart.
