Poem: An Ode to Sausages

Inspired by Drew’s poetry contest @ The Tattooed Book Geek, here’s a fine piece of poetry by yours truly!

An Ode To Sausages

A sausage is no longer a sausage
when it has shed its skin
Inside out, outside in,
where does the meat begin?

Chopping and grinding,
into the sack it goes
The animals’ woes
any way the wind blows.

As the heat cranks up, 
and it starts to perspire
With the fullest desire
lord, that sausage’s on fire!

Chewing and swallowing,
while grease trickles down my lower lip
Please hand me the official pink slip,
because I like my sausage with a creamy white dip.

    Oh my word! Drew will be so happy to read this poem…
    And what does it say about me if your poem manages to create quite a vivid picture of something else in my head- I’m a pervert… and YOU… are an artist with words, Anne 😀 plus you just made my day…
    I name this day, September 12th, The Sausage Day! Embrace the sausages!

    • I hope he realises this isn’t an official entry :’). Unless there’s a special sausage consolation prize 😉 . Hahaha, why, thank you XD. We’re all perverts here! Some of us just don’t know it yet.
      WHOOO! Brilliant! 9/12!! HAIL SAUSAGES!

      P.s.-I actually don’t really like sausages all that much :F. They’re usually dry as fuck so I prefer a good steak instead.
