Chipolata Oblongata
« on: January 16, 2014, 11:21:50 PM »
Chipolata Oblongata

With its porcine provenance
evident in every bite,
thin-skinned and juicy
dipped in baked beans
and laden with mash
from a buttered volcano,
this is no ordinary sausage.

When more than one
graces a plate
they make palisades
to shield chips or toast
from tinned tomatoes,
keeps eggs separate
and in their place
preventing yolk spill
until the yellow is required.

As fingers they dip
into sauce, red or brown,
and compliment mustard,
behave on barbeques
with even cooking
though some misplaced
slip through slots
lost to charcoal and ash
cremated as sacrifice
but we will remember them .

I wasn't hungry, now I am.  And not a sausage in the house.  I'll have to get my porcine fix from a few rashers of bacon.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Lovely, Sio

I've had my lunch  ;D

This bit is clumsy, imo. Yolk / yellow - not your best word combo.
preventing yolk spill
until the yellow is required.


preventing yolk spill
until dunking is required
 ???
This idea works better for me

Merely attention to detail -- first we have to behave and appear to follow rules before we can be radical and break them. ::)
