O, glorious bit of nourishment,
Thy taste is truly heaven sent.
Such pleasure thou expounds to me,
My precious tube of ecstacy!

Though many morsels touch my tongue
Thine anthem ne'er shall be outsung.
Sweet Machevellian delight
Pervades my throat with every bite.

There is no greature pleasure than
Eight sausages packed in a can.
The grandeur of thy sweet bouquet
Is faint to take one's breath away.

Thy juice and stunning succulence
Is said to conjure flatulence
And rumblings from the diaphram
Unmatched, of course, except by Spam.

But, from this land where Mozart played
And Ludwig Van conciertos made,
This land from where great music came
Is it not right you make the same?

Though other weiners may aspire
To be as plump as Oscar Meyer
Thy svelte, petitte, and sleek design
Slide freely through these lips of mine.

At weddings, thou art ever picked,
With swedish meatballs on a stick
To be the morsels of delight
On that most joyous of all nights.

My dearest treat, I bid thee well.
I love thee more than words can tell.
I take my leave....I must compose
My "Sonnet to the Oreo".

Good grief!
Almost, but not quite, makes me want to start eating red meat!
LOL - You know - I just pictured you dancing around with an accordian with a little beret on! (And a long twirly moustache...)

Severn....you're close. More like running nekkid throught the Vienna woods!

Martie....if you're hungry, try a vienna sausage. They're great!

Denise...Making you crack up cracks me up!

Marilyn...You must realize Toerag is a man of class and distinction. He would never use this opportunity to attack me and my love for vienna sausages....but I'm, wearing a hard hat from now on, just in case!

Balladeer,
I'll have mine with eggs over light
If you don't mind and they are right.
Always enjoy your humor. Good job.

Mr. Balladeer,

I used to like that sausage,too
I found it satisfactory
Until my taste buds got askew
By a visit to a sausage factory

I love dunkin' oreos, though

Being of Scandinavian descent, I'm Finnished with sausages... I much prefer Swedish meatballs myself - with lots of sauce....

How 'bout them Hors D'Oeuvres,
Don't they please?
A little Vienna sausage,
A little piece'a cheese!

Hard Hat?...Toe's got class?..Distinction?
What them Vienna sausages got in 'em anyhow?
Of course I wouldn't say something to take anything away from this masterpiece.....LOL (But I did think about it....)

I'm with Hoot... you've already proven you can write an epic about having nothing to write about... and now... Vienna sausages??? ROFLMAO!!!

And you're right, 'Deer one... Toerag is the epitome of class and the finest, most distinguished gentleman in existence. *G* On the other hand... there's his motley crew. *G* That's some macho image the bug man presents, don't you think??? Dancing nekkid in Vienna woods, slurping succulent sausage sauce off his chin? *EG*
