Art thou the thing I wanted?

Art thou the thing I wanted?

Art thou the thing I wanted?
Begone my Tooth has grown
Supply the minor Palate
That has not starved so long
I tell thee while I waited
The mystery of Food
Increased till I abjured it
And dine without Like God

Art thou the thing I wanted?
Begone my Tooth has grown
Affront a minor palate
Thou could’st not goad so long

I tell thee while I waited
The mystery of Food
Increased till I abjured it
Subsisting now like God
