Breakfast

The Bacon simmering
On the frying pan
I can’t resist
Still half asleep
I somnambulate over to
The heavenly smell

I know it well
It’s the way
I start everyday
A cup of joe
And I’m awake
2 or 3 will do

Give or take a few
3 round pancakes
Stacked up on each other
With a creamy slice of butter on the top
DRIPPING, DRENCHED, DROOLING
In Aunt Jemima’s maple syrup

Almost forgot, 2 big sausages to cheer me up
And some yellow scrambled eggs
Then I’m set to go
The smallest meal of the day
But the most important,
Breakfast
