Slice of Toast

There was a slice of toast in the gutter
When I walked back from the garage today
A slice of square bread
White and toasted
No butter
No Jam or marmalade
Just one lost slice of toast
Discarded from someone's life.

What was the story behind the toast?
Was it thrown from some white-van window
Without a care?
Or did a child
Hurrying to school
No time for breakfast at home
Drop it there?
