A Response to ...Waking up with the Widow

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Epi really got me going,

with his tale of stew and woe,

and got my heart to pumping,

thinking mixed stew can't be wrong.


Perhaps the thought of munching on,

a friend or rel deceased,

holds more an appeal for someone else,

but certainly not for me.


Most I know in life would be

stringy, tough and acrid,

knowing what they spouted from their mouths,

their bones and flesh surely putrid.


And anyway,

if you know the name of who you eat,

surely that disrupts the appetite,

at least anonymity would help the palate,

in becoming a cannibalistic initiate.


But I guess that meat's expensive these days,

and what if the odd bloke or dog,

the widow won't know the difference,

and it won't end up on a blog.


So what the hell, dig in my friends,

they may taste better than they lived,

and there's nothing like a satisfying meal,

to forget all them that now give.



Love to have some fun on HubPages! Good on you Colin.

Thanks Maria, I can't imagine anything worse. I can't even face offal of any kind. But it is a fun writing journey. Take care.

Well as soon as I saw Epi's name mentioned in the first line - I knew I was in for a surprise or perhaps a wee shock LOL. Best line here is "they may taste better than they lived" which is food for thought to be sure however, personally, I wouldn't want to experience this. Thanks for the little fantasy journey into the world of cannibalism Tony. It's one of those taboo subjects that great poets like you and Epi are able to write about so well. Voted awesome.

In poetry there is not hole too deep or too dark to shine a light. Sick, definitely, but a bit of fun. Thanks for your comment.
