Poems That Tickle My Feet XVI--- Roadkill Rob

Roadkill Rob --- By Pat Gillem

We call him ' Roadkill Rob' cause that's his name,
to waste a good roadkill, would be a doggone shame.
His recipes are famous, from shore to shining shore,
we even thought of selling them, from door to door.
The aroma, the smell! Oh, what a culinary delight,
we all line up for a plate, there might even be a fight!
There is bruised Deer Chops,and flat rabbit stew,
it all taste delicious, and so good for me and you.
There is smashed squirrel nuggets,and rolled pheasant swirl,
and a secret dish his wife makes, called,' Armadillo Twirl.'
So if your driving down the road, and you see a brake light,
It's probably Robby picking up roadkill, for saute'ed possum tonight
If you stop at Robby's, you never know who you'll meet,
who know's, Ronald McDonald might even stop to eat!

Hi Tammy - I love to have fun and make people laugh. I do have a serious side though. I just can't seem to find it! Ha!

My youngest daughter and I passed the time on a long drive imagining the Road Kill Races, in which animals challenged each other to see who could beat the cars. My daughter had this wonderful announcer's voice, "he's cutting it close, trying to take the lead... go little feller, RUN RUN RU... oooh, he didn't make it." We laughed until the tears came. Such good times, sigh. Thanks for the laugh and the memory.

Hi Gus - No sir, I have never read that tale, but I once field dressed a deer that a friend of ours hit with a car. I cut out the bad parts and gave her family the rest. Good hearing from you again Gus.

Howdy PaddyBoy - Loved the names of the dishes! Bye the bye, PB, did you read that tale about the Englishman who claims to have lived off of roadkill over the last 32 years? One of the interesting aspects of that report was that the man was a "conservation officer."

"Waste not-want more"

Hve you ever hear of Carl Hiasson(sp) he is a Florida writer. You owe it to yourself to. Find his book "Double Whammie". One of the characters eats exclusively road kill. Loved it!
