In the Room by James Thomson.

Part 3 of 13.

The cupboard grumbled

with a groan,
Each new day worse starvation brings:
Since he came here I have not known
Or sweets or cates or wholesome things:
But now! a pinch of meal, a crust,
Throughout the week is all I get.
I am so empty; it is just
As when they said we were to let.

What is become, then, of our Man?
The petulant old glass exclaim’d;
If all this time he slumber can,
He really ought to be ashamed.
I wish we had our Girl again,
So and busy, bright and fair:
The girls are better than these men,
Who only for their dull selves care.

    Here the cupboard complains that there is no good food stored in it, and that the food that it has gotten recently has been very sparse and basic. A drinking glass then also complains that the man of this room seems to sleep too much. The glass misses the previous tenant of the room who was a girl and who cared better for the items here.
