Privilege

waffles or omelette or cereal?
But we are out of milk ,
so settling for a day hitting 
one for three limits our options,
and sometimes tears flow 
from a lack of choices —
but wait, there is bread 
and a toaster and electricity that works
and raspberry jelly and yes, you can have another piece 
and yes, I raised my voice at your unwillingness 
to recite John 12:26, but I did spare the rod
 and I hope I did not spoil the child with all this privilege.
