Frying

Fry

Out in the Grecian sun

whilst sausages are cooking in the chefs pan

turning brown from pink

the restaurants recipients

are lying on sun loungers

or sat on coral sand beach

worshipping Ra above

in a vain attempt

to mimic their luncheon.

Hole in the Road

Alternate title – “An Ode to Roadworks”

 

A hole appeared from nowhere

the size of a cricket ball

Test match players denied

they sent a ball there

 

Some say the hole – has the power of atlas

as it halts mighty juggernauts

travelling down the main road

Supermarket shelves – lie barren

 

Lorry drivers watch in despair

as men from the ministry

stand with umbrellas, motionless in rain

waiting for the magic machine – to fill the hole

 

And as tailbacks form – the rain fills the hole

and drivers diverted to diversions of a teacup

a place to rest the wheels

halted by the hole

 

So drivers slow down

and come to a stop

as transport café sausage barms

for luncheon they pop.

 

Travel decisions secondary

whilst people stand like horse

more important decisions here

onions and brown sauce ?

Over the Coals

several sausages
sizzle in the Noonday Sun
awaiting a bap

Hamburgers announce
readiness with aroma
as the coals they glow

Seasonings ? Brown or Red
Little people line up
in Anticipation

and over the grill
the most important question
onions or pickles?
