Plain bricks of wheat
I ate you as a 6-year-old, mushy with grated apple and sultanas
I ate you as a teenager, made up with hot chocolate powder and hot water
I ate you as a university student, mixed with yoghurt and topped with fruit
I like you mushy, warm in winter and cold in summer
I like you with stewed fruit and no milk
I like you with frozen berries that are partially thawed
I like you with chocolate soy milk
I can eat you at any time of day
Sometimes I eat you plain, straight from the packet
Sometimes I eat you daily for weeks
Sometimes I ignore you for months
But you are always in my pantry
And you never disappoint.
