Ode to Bacon

You’ve been there for me

Through thick slices and thin

You’ve covered my burgers

I don’t remember when

🥓

The first time I smelled you

Or the first time we met

When I knew in my tastebuds

we’d be the very best

🥓

Of friends, buddies

pals or even bff’s

Hot, lukewarm or cold

after you’ve been left

🥓

On the breakfast bar

No one cared to replenish

I will love you still, dear bacon

Till the end or till I finish

🥓

my pancakes at dinner

On shrimp & grits you’re sprinkled

It’s to you that I owe love

Till I’m old and wrinkled

🥓

Thank you for reading and following
