Whatís on the Menu?

The apple looked quite good to Eve.
Adam ate too, they had to leave.
Esau wanted savory stew,
Lost his birthright, first thing he knew.

Now the Israelites would complain
That eating manna was a pain.
They wanted onions, garlic, leeks,
For something more tasty to seek.

The Kingís menu of wine and meat,
Daniel and friends refused to eat.
Jesus said Iím the bread of life.
Iíll help your through trouble and strife.

He fed the crowds with bread and fish.
Spiritual food they did not wish.
To please God we should always seek
Even in what we drink and eat.

When Jesus His disciples told
Come eat bread and fish ere itís cold,
Surely this meal had a flavor
Each of them could really savor.

At last to Godís great banquet hall
All His faithful ones He will call.
For those who have gained His favor,
Heavenly food they will savor.Whatís on the Menu?

Very good job I like the way it flowed.

Very enjoyable poem which I found to be right on topic. Your rhythm was good except im one stanza but other than that you were right on mark re the topic and you obviously know your Bible to be able to write a poem such as this. Good job!

This is a delightful culinary tour of the Bible. I think it was quite clever and I enjoyed the rhyme and smooth rhythm.

As for the little fluke about repeating the verse, don't worry that happens to the best of us. One little trick I learned is to leave the level and title boxes blank until you have fully previewed your story. By leaving it blank if you accidentally hit submit instead of preview the article won't be accepted until you go back and fill in the level and title boxes.

This was fun to read and left me with a feel good feeling. You definitely covered the topic in a creative and different way.
