An "Ode to Spam" hangs
on my wall for all to see
a few for you now...

Silent, former pig
One communal awareness
Myriad pink bricks

Pink tender morsel
Glistening with salty gel
What the hell is it?

Little slab of meat
In a wash of clear jelly
Now I heat the pan

Pink beefy temptress
I can no longer remain
Vegetarian

Old man seeks doctor
"I eat Spam daily", he says.
Angioplasty

...there are more on page
if wanted more will be seen
respond in due time..... :D
