Please Pass the Poetry

Send it to the right
with your left hand 
where my right hand 
will pick it up so our 
shoulders don't get 
jumbled while I
 transfer it to my left hand 
and heap my plate
before I pass it  
to the right with 
my left where they
grab it with their right 
heaping their plate
from the left hand
before they pass it 
on to the right
 until it has gone 
all around the table 
and we sit back 
full bellied. Wait a spell, 

let it settle before 
you ask for seconds.

Very clever and a fun way to discuss how to imbibe and "digest" poetry!
