A Bologna Sandwich? Poem by Marilyn Lott

A Bologna Sandwich?

Rating: 4.4

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue

A BBQ sandwich makes my mouth water
So spicy but never too hot
A meatloaf sandwich is delicious as well
With sweet tea it just plain hits the spot

Roast beef or ham always tastes so right
Chopped liver - well, I'm not quite sure
But brisket sounds perfect for me
If I'm hungry it is really the cure

But some folks love a bologna sandwich
With white bread and a slather of mayo
Some top it with a slice of cheese
It's so quick if you're on the go

But I knew a guy who put the bologna
In the microwave way too long
Tough as shoe leather it was, oh my
On a menu it just wouldn't belong

Sandwiches or burgers are a lunch delight
On the menu they light up the day
But the bologna sandwich goes way back
If you join me we will order one without delay!

A temple! Named by stomach of abdomen kingdom! No worshiper is here; no oblations! Hungry in angry eyes the state holder! O bologna sandwich come, come hither and pacify the lord of hungry with your oblations! nice 10++++
