New Mexico Woman Charged with Battery for Licking Cheesea

 A Dose of Humanity Means a Lot of Less Angry Licks
My father used to regale me with stories of the naval Filipino stewards serving in the officers’ mess
High and mighty Naval grads often treated them with disdain and put them under great duress
Woe be it to officer wearing a class ring who treated the stewards like scum
Putting them on meaningless reports always under a disdaining thumb
When my chief petty officer father’s wise words to these officers were ignored
The instances of urine flavoring in the salads and soups of the grads soared
It almost seems like a déjà vu from a New Mexico school that teaches prison guards
Correctional officers are not icons of compassion only discipline delivered baton hard
A woman there has been charged with battery for on the cheese slices choosing to lick
One can only hope these charges do not stick
Correctional officers are in most cases brutal to their very core
Maybe a little behavior training might make the cheese licking cases drop and  not soar.
