On The Menu

On The Menu

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)
"

Everything I have said in this at one time or another has occurred to me in my restaurant there are more but I ran out of rhymes it is amazing what people say and believe when they say it....

"

__On the menu__


 

I’m a vegan with celiac

And allergic to soy

Alliums are aphrodisiacs

Meditations destroy

Nights shades give me such nausea

Inflammation to joints

 Refined sugar gives hypoxia

Should a cancer deploy

Latex causes asphyxia

Use of gloves must avoid

Caffeine gives tachycardia

Coffee cocoa destroys

 Alcohol sways ataxia

Makes sensitive to noise

Fatty foods increase apnea

Unbalancing my poise

Dear sir your hypochondria

To this host you annoy

This menu meets your criteria

Have some salt please enjoy

You do quite the business, Bunny, looks like a great place...I know all of the above in your poem...30 years of restaurant managing...have heard them all....some people just go out to eat to complain.
So interested to know what you do serve in your restaurant...
the picture makes me hungry.

I just read your profile, which I hadn't seen before, & I love all that you share . . . you are an open book more & more, it seems! I love having a fuller understanding of all that you are involved in & restaurant experiences are especially fun, love the photo of your place. That being said, & knowing your poem is about dining, I also find your message to be a strong explanation of what I hate most about being old . . . people are obsessed with their f****n' ailments & pills! It becomes part of their identity! If I lead in to every conversation with six maladies & disorders, just shoot me. Ooops! You touched a nerve with me. I have so much more to say about food sensitivities, but you definitely covered this well in you poem. I love the details (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Brilliant & deliciously true... My son opened his first restaurant almost two years ago and I am amazed at some of the comments and requests he receives.... Must admit I was gutted when he quit studying law after three years, but now I am an extremely proud Dad indeed as his reputation and my belly are both expanding..... Neville

You have a restaurant? How fabulous! I wish I were more geographically inclined to pay you a visit. What's your house specialty? Great piece, by the way but I've got one complaint. Now I'm hungry! ; )

Oh, this is so delicious! Some people put so many restrictions on their diet that I wonder what they CAN eat. Those are usually the people who will tell everyone else what they SHOULD be eating. This is just great...poking fun at something many can identify with. Lydi**

Your front dining room looks amazing and it seems there are many people who like your offerings sir. This poem is like your restaurant, disobediant, defiant, different, diffident and delicious.

' Dear sir your hypochondria - To this host you annoy - This menu meets your criteria - Have some salt please enjoy.. '

Part laughing, part frowning, part understanding only too well - the rest of me's nodding!

Part from those who have been told NOT to eat this or that by the medical profession, too often people climb on this or that health wagon but don't bother to check facts. Like a car, the human body needs the right conditions, regimen, needs - call it what you like. Fads aren't fastidious, they're downright fussy!

As always your words make their own music - near meter perfect. The medical terms add the necessary (in this case) caustic appraisal of some of the public at large. Was a vegetarian for almost ten years - now varied it cos I needed more than having. So, can be what I like with respect to self, critters and food values. Most of the time! Fine writing and interesting to boot.. but not leather!

Taking it all with a pinch of salt. I love that Bunny. Some people just love to find fault and nit pick when they can. It must need more than a little patience on your part. Now I would be an easy customer to please. Related with your usual panache.
