3 slices of bread
steak with seasoning forming a crust
potatoes fried and crispy
peas and carrots with butter
In this poem a person is hungry and poor. All they have to eat is three slices of bread. In their condition, they close their eyes and imagine the bread to be a dinner of steak, potatoes, peas and carrots, apple pie, and coffee. The poem generally is about a person in a current condition imagining themselves in a better condition.
