Your Plate or Mine?

 
Would you rather have
A full-plate day
Or an empty one?
Both may be your life, your time,
Your chosen avenue.
Both do beck and call.
 
The first allows for preparation.
Because the dog wags
Your tail tells.
It’s nice to know
With some sense of security
What will come your way.
 
The other plate permits
The random ramble,
Some time to notice that the dog
Is smiling,
And offers the opportunity to ask
Why do cats purr?
 
A challenge with the empty plate
Is knowing how to read the menu,
How to move among the courses,
When to go back for seconds,
And when to pat your smiling belly.
