A prompt from Writerswrite.co.za – cheers to the promptuarium for providing the list of prompts
Best meal of the day, some people call it….
Ripe tasty bananas slapped between two pieces of buttered bread, or
Egg, boiled and salted, and served up with bread soldiers
A hearty breakfast – they say, is fit for a
King….Bacon, Eggs, sausage, tomatoes….
French toast is an alternative if you don’t like chasing your food
As are cereals….but don’t forget toast and
Strawberry jam….its a crowd pleaser
That’ll please any fussy eater (or cheese if they don’t like the sweet stuff)
Salford 15th February 2020
During the week, it was the hot topic of conversation
Election ? Europe ? no! none of these
But a culinary conundrum – which sandwich was better
A choice of Sausage, Egg, Bacon, or Cheese
The favourite – an obvious choice – but
Everyone wants their own bite of the butty!
Salford 23rd August 2018
are better clarion calls
than any alarm clock
on the market
broken by a cistern
attracts you to the noise
of the nearby main road
allows Ra to announce
“The morning is here!
it’s time to get up”
And motorised monsters
or kings of the road
make their way delivering boxes
either side of the tarmac
converses with the neighbours
on a nearby roof –
tweets the news – no laptop required
The rumble of early morning traffic
cascading through the windows
is followed by the crack of an egg
falling into sizzling bacon fat
Kettle whistles through the concrete
up through the bedroom floor
your first cup of the day is ready
milk and two sugars ?
This ain’t no restaurant “French toast”
it’s made over burning logs
in the country air
Foundation for the morning
Set against a glorious sunrise
and cups of camp tea
Thick crusty bread
absorbed in a lake of
Bacon awaits its partner
as it cooks away
in its fat
Poor Man’s omelette ?
after a night on the hills
it’s the food of kings.
Knives and forks ?
or eaten as a sandwich
only quandry – sauce Red or Brown ?
