You are a silly old sausage, she teased. 
Well, let's be more specific, he wheezed.
 Am I Andouille, tasty but smelly, 
Or a small Chipolata, a body like jelly. 
A spicy Chorizo, made up of hot stuff, 
Or a big handsome Bratwurst, who can't get enough. 
I was thinking of Breakfast, because of the taste, 
Lacking in substance, but too good to waste.

  1. Lol. Lacking in substance but too good to waste. That’s vsome kind of backhander… Or fore hander I guess. I was recently reminded of one of Leonard Cohen’s songs in which he said “She told me again she preferred handsome men, but for me she would make an exception.”. I love this line and yours reminds me of it somewhat.

  2. some great lines there, Hobbo: a tasty, titilllating tease of a piece; jolly good one: I can tell you had fun with this — and that’s how the best light verse is written: in a spirit of play 🙂
