The Holy Grail Of Diets - Poem by Bill Cantrell

Take away the carrot sticks, olives, mushrooms too
Stupid cauliflower or boring veggie stew
Open up the windows and let some sunshine in
Set the kitchen table and let my day begin with...
Sausage, gravy, fatback, with a couple eggs
The smell of bacon frying will make a noble beg
Half a dozen pancakes with much butter in between,
An old man needs his fiber, don't ask me what I mean
The sounding of the dinnerbell, hunger setting in,
Chicken backs, necks and thighs, please leave on the skin!
Pork and beans without the beans and steak with crispy fat
Hot wings must be breaded if you want me coming back
Yes, The holy Grail of diets, I cherish every bite
A man needs more than food for thought to quench his appetite
So pass the steak and gravy and bring my favorite brew
And if your diet is different,
Then bring your veggie stew

    Very funny! A time to let go of good sense and be decadent? Ok, I'll bring my veggie stew (I'm vegetarian...!) (Report) Reply
