A Good Thing?


While sautéing shallots in your omelet pan,
Sprayed first with canola Pam,
I learned that you had a one-night stand,
Did you use a condom made of lamb?

In the same report I sadly learned,
As I added quail eggs and salted ham,
That you admitted to having sex texted,
What were the rituals you requested?

At a ménage a trios you demurred
It was an error you inferred
Did K-Mart’s Queen of haute cuisine
Baste with butter Paula Deen?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
