Of Mice And Pork Pies


I was gonna comment on that book/film

'Of Mice and Men'

But pork pies got in the way!

So I've subtitled it:

'Pork . pork, and more pork!'


A hunger, a craze, a longing

Must have pork pies now!

At least 10 of 'em.

I dunno anything about the book/film though

Never read the book, or seen the film


Fido wants pork pies too

He will join me for lunch

He says don't read any hot poems during lunch

Or you will only swoon!


And - do mice eat pork pies?

I'm rambling on

Why? Where ya going? Where ya walking?

Nope, not that rambling

I mean waffling on

Spouting out things of no importance at all

Talking rubbish - or garbage, if ya prefer!


Aww, Fido consoles me

When they say 'No change there then!' heehee.


I'm still trying to get out of this Fire Door

But it's gotta be kept closed at all times

So says the notice on the door

What? Even if there's a fire?! Doh!


This poem will appear in the genre 'Rubbish!' lol.

                Think you better lie low for a while, my friend. If KP gets involved in this RB thing, you could possibly get dragged in...... hate to see you on the front pages of the Sun and Mirror as they ask were you the third party in a swinging threesome.....

                    I'm laughing and trying to type at the same time. Help! I can't stop and it's all your fault. "Pork, pork and more pork" could have been a Monty Python sketch, on par with "Spam, spam and spam". You did it my friend, you made my day, and I ain't had my day made in a long time. Thank you!

                    • orchidee

                      Thanks Bell lol. Goldfinch reminded me of pork pies first!

                    • Goldfinch60
