Crispy Wing Things

Notice of absence from WriteBeLight
Here I go again .... have to be away for awhile. Not very long, though. Family, home and work are pulling me away, for now. Do not worry. With the exception of family and home, I will not let work take from me too much time to do what I love.... compose poetry. :)

Oh, scrumptious Wing Dings!

What a tasty invention.

So, crispy and delish!

Chow down at least eleven.


A little Duck Sauce,

Of fruit, soy, sugar.

Dip in these tasty things,

Flavor lasts forever.


Can’t make these at home.

Only get them as takeout.

How about a draft Lite beer,

Just can’t live without.


Not something for everyday.

Only as a special treat.

Too much of a good Wing thing,

His diet’s in defeat.


He tells the Waitress he’s ready,

To order some, no doubt.

What’s that she just said?

Wings Dings, we just ran out!??


Sadly, he sits and ponders,

As the thought of those morsels linger.

Shrugs and goes to Plan B,

“Just have the Chicken Fingers.”

            Thanks Santita. I wish I could get these at the store. But, I have a feeling I could not make them as good as they do in restaurants. :)

                  Thanks orchidee! I know you like Pork Pies, but Wing Dings should go great with sherry I would think :)

                    Great fun write even without a 'u' in flavour - we love them this side of the pond as well.

                    • WriteBeLight

                      Wow! I learned something new today. Thought they were only available here. Glad we have that in common, plus our love for wine :) Thanks Michael! Getting late here. Will be out of work soon. Going to grab some at a local pub if I am lucky! I will think of you :)
