A horrible thought just came to mind
of a world without a pig.
It’s surely a fitter for the handiest critter
for variety and taste. Can you dig?
Lets start with bacon.
Wonderful, amazing bacon…
Words can’t describe how I feel deep inside
about the pigs most delectable part.
It spits and it spatters as it fries without batter.
My goodness, just the thought warms my heart.
I take in the smell like the wind in a sail
for it’s surely the pigs top legacy.
I dream of a bite with a crunch of delight
as my teeth settle into pork ecstasy.
Now. Onto the chops.
Goodness me, fried pork chops…
One can only hope of a fortune which holds a portion
as golden they sit on a plate.
Their bully perfume infiltrate the room
just driving ones heart to elate.
The heavenly flavor my tongue yearns to savor
before it comes out of the grease.
Beside turn-up greens or boiled cabbage and beans
this surely my hunger will cease.
Don’t forget the ribs.
Yes pork ribs..
Baby back pork ribs…
Over coals of mesquite it sends joy clear down to my feet
to see a rack there on the pit.
As glaze takes them over the wafting aroma
cause my taste buds wanting to fit.
They promise a taste as they lovingly baste
My heart it beats with delight.
Tender, sweet, salty my beverage is malty
good heavens this pairings just right.
They are all so good.
There are so many ways..
To dice up a porker to eat…
From sausage to ham, pork roast or spam.
Why you can even pickle the feet.
It scares me to ponder of losing this wonder
of glutenous tasteful delight .
As these thoughts cross my mind my heart yearns to dine
on a banquet of pig parts tonight.
