“Food Flight”  by Celia Berrell

Food Flight

 

Food

in zero gravity

creates

quite a calamity.

Crumbs

can float-off anywhere:

mingle

with your wafting hair;

up

your nose;

get

in your ears;

cause

choking, sneezing

itching

tears!

 

Tourists

will soon fly in space

expecting

snacks to be in place.

Marshmallows

can’t get up your nose.

At worst

they might mess-up your clothes.

If

thrown around

they’re

safe and fun.

Food-ball

cushions

tasting

yum!
