''SNACKs HEARD 'ROUND THE WORLD''


‘’The Snacks
                   Heard ‘Round The World’’

 
To Enjoy Living - We Have To Be Heard
AND Taken Seriously!
The LESS We Are Heard and Taken Seriously,
The MORE Time We Spend Trying
To Obtain These Conditions

When We Finally Feel Satisfied
That These Conditions Are Met
‘’We ARE Free
We CAN Enjoy!’’

A Few Years Back The State Spoke
Of Snacks
They Spent an Inordinate
Amount of Time on This
In Fact,
Their Whole Visit Seemed To Be
About The Snacks

I Believe We All Have
Needs and Preferences
Being As We ARE In a Hospital
Our NEEDS Are Taken Care of
By Where We ARE
Admittedly, They Are Pretty Good
About That

But, This Leaves The Preferences
Our Preferences Being Met
Can Make or Break
Our Whole Psychological Stay
At The Hospital
(or ANYWHERE AT ALL
FOR THAT MATTER!)

NOW...It Seems To Me, That The State,
In Their Own Inimitable Way,
Was Alluding To The Same Thing,
(Kind of!)

If Preferences Are Met
We Are Happier and MORE Satisfied.
If NOT, We ARE NOT!

Snacks Can REPRESENT That ONE Thing
That We ALL Need
To SATISFY That PROFOUND HUNGER
That We ALL Carry
That We Have At Every Moment!
AND…This Snack Doesn’t Have To Be Edible!

If We Begin To Get Our Preferences Met
In a Regular and Timely Manner
We Will Be Much Happier Campers
Than We Are NOW

I Think Most of the Time
NO Matter The Malady
That Brought Us To The Hospital
The ‘’UNMET’’ Desire Causes The Problem
Of PATIENT UNREST and
THERAPEUTIC UNSETTLEDNESS!

A HUGE PROBLEM, WITH A SIMPLE SOLUTION

Well…I, Guess, That’s a Wrap!
I Think I Will See If there is A Snack Available
That Will Fit My ‘PARTICULAR’ NEED!
(Admittedly…I’m One of the MORE Fortunate Ones Who Has
Learned This Valuable Lesson.)

I NOW Know My PREFERENCES
AND...Better Yet,
HOW TO GET THEM MET!

BUT…Why ARE There So Many
Who HAVE NOT YET LEARNED?

This APPLIES TO
EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE!
We ALL HAVE NEEDS and PREFERENCES!
