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.
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.
