Ode To Mcdonald's Hash Browns - Poem by David Whalen


Forbidden Pleasure

This morning I had a Hash brown
Something I almost never do
It was greasy and hot
And I liked it a lot
I was sorely tempted
To go back and buy two

The girlish squeals from my booth
Were embarrassing in truth
But I simply could not
Contain my delight
The smile on my face
Could not be erased
As it only grew wider
With each bite

One hundred fifty calories
Seemed as naught to my belly
As I scarfed the last morsel down
And I was not really conscious
Of regret or guilty conscience
Only the memory
Of that Heavenly
…Hash Brown…

    Ha Ha! A delightful poem! Enjoyed it so much! Pretty much what happens to me when I eat one of them, that's why I rarely eat one! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
