keep your elbows off the table!!
Admonished...
Beans and cornbread
fried potatoes
cold milk dipped

Fry it
    boiled
      potaotes by the hundred pound
        in the cellar with canned jar
           of everything that didn't move
              or moved too slow
                 and got boiled
                      or fried


Fresh from the garden
   meaning you had spent hours with a hoe
       and not the kind
          people talk about today

Eat all you want...cause what ain't et now

we gotta can

Pass the salt
and pepper too

No more eggs thank you
I'm starting to grow feathers as it is
and when the sun comes up
I end up scratching in the dirt

What do you mean burned?
You can't eat it raw you know
ain't healthy
beside that blood oozen out
ruins everyone elses appetite

Thinking now about all those times
I have to ask....

anyone know a good Sushi bar?

An ode to the old fashioned memory, down home, how it used to be around the table...maybe still is in some parts.  My family didn't can or grow a garden when I was growing up...so I missed out.  I do know the work of "fresh out of the garden" though, and also the better taste.

Sorry to ramble on...I enjoyed the fun of your poem and also...I do know a great sushi bar.

Hah... well I lived in the city from birth, so I have no such memories.  Everything I eat is bought at the store.  And burned?  My sincerest apologies, sir... I'll try not to burn it in the future.  

That's spoiled brathood for you.
