For a bacon sandwich…

Although this was written a few years ago during a relatively minor, though annoying, health problem… now that I can no longer swallow effectively with the cancer, it seems to fit the bill perfectly ๐Ÿ˜‰


Iโ€™m just a tad bored with my diet,
Thereโ€™s nowt wrong with yoghurt per se
And I know that itโ€™s good for my innards,
But you donโ€™t want it three times a day.

The antibiotics are awful,
Make me ravenous morning till night,
Iโ€™m fair pittled off
With no vittles to scoff
And Iโ€™d kill to have something to bite.

I dream of a nice bacon sarnie,
On thick buttered bread, golden brown,
A crispy fried egg nestled in there,
And bright yellow yolk dripping down.

Just a couple of nicely cooked rashers
As ambition, it isnโ€™t that bigโ€ฆ
Itโ€™s taking the biscuit,
I darenโ€™t even risk it,
Yet look like I ate the whole pig.

A nice bit of rump steak would do it,
With cognac and mushrooms and cream,
And a small glass of Burgundy with it?
Ah well, lass, at least you can dreamโ€ฆ

It is all bland and boring at present
As I wait for the duff bits to heal
And look forward with glee
To the day I am free
To indulge in a heavenly meal.

  3. Great one from Laughter Lines! And yes, to liquidize a delightful ad yummy bacon sarnie is indeed criminal. Hubby stands by the cooker and sniffs if I’m preparing one for me as he can’t eat bacon or bread either. Makes me feel very guilty.


  4. I remember this fun poem, Sue. Itโ€™s just as funny the second time around.


  5. Oh … I’m a yogi that loves a little bacon at times too!!!!
    Now I’m hungry but I have to go train someone so I would be busted.
    lol. ๐Ÿ’–

    sue, you are blessed, you have stubborn faith, I think that when your Spirit is up, it makes all the difference, if only those who taught about the Spirit only knew it,keep well, your re blogs are doing me good, thanks

    I’m sorry you aren’t able to eat your usual yummy things… I sympathize particularly with the bacon part… I have such a weakness for it myself. Ice cream and kitkats… why not? Do they have bacon flavored ice cream?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You’ve got me salivating! You can blend up a pizza though and it still tastes like pizza! And yes, there is bacon-flavored ice cream!

    Not that I eat bacon or eggs for that matter, but I can totally understand your feelings. Ben there too, and recently when I got my gallbladder removed!

    Oh, I remember this the first time around. Very funny. Although seeing a yummy pic of a bacon sarnie at breakfast time is enough to make me do a Homer Simpson at the screen – haha.
    Hope you find something yummy to enjoy instead.
    Take Care

    Can’t beat bacon when you’re looking for a satisfying meal…(k)


  13. A clever poem, Sue, but I sure wish you were eating those wonderful meals instead of waxing poetic about them. โค Hugs.

    What if you chopped it up really small … and stuck it on top of a kitkat ๐Ÿ˜€
