“Sandwiches”

Poem 18 in the ProCrasstheNation Poemvember Poetry Project is about one of my favorite things: sandwiches. Thank you to Jennifer S. for helping me to gush about something I hold dear.

Mangia!

 

“Sandwiches”

 

I love me a hearty sammich.

Some bread and lots of meat.

Condiment selections,

and extra, extra cheese.

 

A hero, spuckie, grinder,

hoagie, flatbread treat.

A sub for my friend, Sharon.

Wraps, tortas, paninis.

 

When concerning yourself with matters,

of the culinary.

You could do a lot worse,

than grabbing a gyro with tzatziki.

 

A pita full of hummus,

a steakbomb with the grease.

A poor boy dripping sauce,

all over your knees.

 

Here’s a little secret:

Last call, at Mike’s Roast Beef.

Order a super with sauce,

on an onion roll, with cheese.

 

If going to Christy’s,

and you can avoid Sal’s lazy eye.

A ham and cheese with picks and ungs,

will keep you satisfied.

 

Papa Gino’s Chicken Pahm.

Collier’s Boloney.

Ground Round’s Reuben cut in half.

A Jenny’s meatball dream.

 

You can keep your five-star restaurant,

I’ll take the corner deli.

An overstuffed sando,

is what makes a happy belly.
