When I get that sensation of hunger,
My belly starts to howl, turning into a beast.
It starts off as a blue representing sadness.
This sadness is the emptiness that resides until there’s food.
The color soon changes to green.
When I see a yummy snack, the beast quickly fills with envy.
A shade of red starts to form, this monster’s getting more hungry.
Deep inside, I can hear it moaning, groaning, even grumbling.
When at last, I take a bite of something very scrumptious,
The beast is calm, the color’s now yellow.
It is happy, content and shining.
