Painting - Sausages on a Grill

Best Beef Sausages

Are happily sizzling over

Roasting hots coals

Beefburgers drip hot fat in

Expectation of sizzling onions

Currently cooking on a skillet, while

Up on the far table – next to the sesame seeded buns

Every kind of sauce and relish imaginable – they’ve even got Curry!

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

I watch out of a window

as vans pull up

and men in orange overalls

share a thermos – the first of many

they’re guarding the hole

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?
