In the fridge
he kept his good stuff
Bologna, mayonnaise
especially lettuce,
cool and crisp
wrapped in towels,
loved cool and crisp he did.
No soggy or limp for him, no.
Why you always wait so long
to put that there lettuce in
they asked him.
The sense of taste, you know,
he told them.
Lacking cool and crisp so long
a man hankers for this here
big smilin first bite.
You could see it in his eyes, yes.

Now ..... you done gone and made me HUNGRY!
Martie .... reminds me of
'LETTUCE Entertain You.'
I love it.

Ran to the fridge
to check the supplies
for a bologna sandwich
Dagwood size.

Got the stuff
to build it high ...
and then I'll regret
when it ends up on my thighs !

Thanks you guys. This poem was all Balladeer's fault. The Vienna Sausage poem made me hungry and all I had was Bologna.
