Bacon Sonnet

These are, as John Lennon said, “strange days, indeed!”
So I thought I’d take a break from some of the longer pieces and give you a quick ode to Bacon.


If there’s one thing about which I am certain
And about which I could never be mistaken
Lock the doors and close every curtain
And leave me here to eat all the bacon.

Bacon has a sound that’s like no other sizzling
Whether fried in a pan or on a hot grill
Woe betide the monster or quisling
Who might separate me from my Bacon-Ville.

Some love bacon best when it’s very crunchy
And some love it best when it can be chewed
Of all the things one might find munchy
None match a beautiful bacon interlude.

Love comes and goes, like the Equinox Vernal
But that doesn’t matter; Bacon is eternal.
