Finger-licking Bad...... [Bad 'tastes'; Oddities; Eccentricities]


Would you ever wear a striped shirt with green paisley pants?
If I did, I'm sure there'd be no end to the critics' rants.
Imagine a man with a shaved head...., but only on one side.
If he were hitchhiking, would you stop to give him a ride?

Would you give a panhandler wearing a mink coat even a dime?
I'd bet most of you readers would not give her the time.
And if the waiter set in front of you a fish still wiggling in sauce,
I'll bet a few of you readers...., your cookies would toss.

    Oh have you not had live octopus! ! !
    Or shish ka bob trantula roasted over an open fire! ! !
    Perhaps fresh skint rattle snake cubes still trying to coil! ! !
    Gee, Bri, get out there for the thrill. (Report) Reply

    This work is GREAT! love the way you brought the story to the end part. i won't eat a poor fish that is wiggling in my plate. but perhaps _ in the future_ (who knows) ? a friend of mine will invite me to grab a bite in a restaurant that serves those foods. har har har har...and then i think i should accept his nice invitation and then....
    maybe i like the food? again, ...who knows.....? Bri, your poetry style is unique. if there was anything over the unique, again that is for you.
    And about the last name of mine, i will be glad to talk about this with ya with message.
    Your pleasure is my wish. this poem is so perfect
