Fried Egg Sandwich

Canary yellow oozes through

holes on white or Hovis brown

onto sticky fingers and buttered

lips providing a taste of purest

luxury. A feast to fill a cavernous

gap, induced by liquid nights in

the Rose and Crown or

Lebanese Gold munchies


A reminder to those who made

it good through hard work,

study and beguiling words – the

good life is no match for real-life

gourmet food which transports

 your memory to the pleasures

necessities gift by simple living.

Loved this quirky take on life. The title would suggest an almost flippant content but the surprise is its a much deeper poem. Well done.
