Peanut Butter Bologna Sammiches

Peanut Butter Bologna Sammiches

A Poem by William Michael Reeves
"

An Epigram masquerading as a recipe

"
Sure, you could make it on bread
But the following recipe should really be read:

1 whole
Ritz Cracker...flaky and crispy like life
Fragile! So careful with that knife
Salty like a hunger at night
Circle that's a buttery delight!

1 quarter
Oscar Meyer...slice of bologna meat
Must likely be from the cow's seat
Nice savory simplicity
Just taste the comfort. You will see.

1 half
Nutter Butter...giant spoon of peanut butter
Or use a fork to get it better
Plant half right on your tongue
Your buds will sing notes uniquely sung.

Now stack it together in the right order:

1 whole cracker of hope
1/4 slice of life
1/2 spork of love
Or go ahead and use a knife.
Just please be careful. If it breaks you'll have a handful.

Now it's complete. Savory salty and sweet!

Author's Note

William Michael Reeves
I love the singular taste that happens with peanut butter and Bologna. And I bet you have some strange thing you like to eat too. And yes, I eat the peanut butter right out of the jar and halve the load with my tongue before putting it on the cracker.

As I understand an epigram it's short funny and anything goes. I may have overhymed in this one. This is the first time I began each line with alternating rhyme and ended the line with couples.

Bologna with peanut butter, eh? I've never tried it, but I love Jif, and you've certainly aroused my taste buds. I sometimes grab a tablespoon, and take a dip...and call it lunch! Nothing better with a banana, too. Your delivery has now made me hungry. Everything tastes better when it sits on a Ritz!

I put peanut butter on my toast, I love it that way, but I use too much bread that way...
What a memory filled poem, and what you did worked for me, I went straight for the kitchen after reading :) --- This mix of poetry and flavors brought back a mix of my own, I think I was five years old. --One slice of bologna on a slice of white bread lightly covered in Mayo. next comes a slice of American cheese, then strawberry preserves. The second slice of bread, to complete the sandwich, had a coating of PeanutButter on it, the thickness was considerable. (Note: I don't remember getting sick after eating my half, and my dog seemed to like the combination just fine on her half.

Peanut butter and baloney

Oscar Meyer would say it's B-O-L-O-G-N-A. But then my writing is just a bunch of baloney so I think .. read more
this was fun to read and interesting taste buds you have there :) and yes I have my quirky food likes and my favorite mixture is bean with bacon soup and it has to be Campbell's soup with fried bits of Bologna in it and it has to be Oscar Mayer's beef bologna and then a generous swirl of mustard and it doesn't matter what bran of mustard, see I am not all that picky. My family thinks it's disgusting but I love it! the writing was creative by the way as much as the topic. well done

Yes, Peanut Butter and Bacon sandwiches, since I was a little kid in the Bronx.

Oooh, yummy! Spam sizzled on a griddle. Eat it up before the peanut butter gets runny!
