Ham 'n' Eggs
by ©Richard Budig 1999

Onion and garlic sizzlin' in a pan
I'm dicin' ham just as fast as I can
add enough curry to make it yellow
and then I start on the portabello
scrape away those dark brown gills
makin' that mushroom nude for the grill
drop in the ham and up goes the static
bet you can hear it way up in the attic
now give it a couple of them fancy flips
like a guy on TV doin' the chef's two-step
and here's where art and dexterity combine
you gotta add a tot, just a tot, I say, of wine
then give it one of them New York minutes
so's to burn that alcohol down to the limit
now crack in a couple of eggs from on high
and give 'em a little time to poach and fry
then stir gently with a big wooden spoon
to be sure you don't bruise the mushroom
and when the yellow swirls through the white
and the ham peeks out all pink and bright
put it on your plate beside your toast and jam
and have a big sniff as you take fork in hand
