Life is Like a Sandwich © by Jackie Lynaugh
“Come home with me
and I’ll make you a
with runny egg yolks
and grainy mustard,
slices of sweet ham and onions.
We will fill our body and mind.
Weak and weary after we devour each other,
we deserve a good meal.
Come home with me.
Your burden is light
for all your wants and needs
you are easy to love.
I will take care of you and
make you a sun vine ripe tomato sandwich,
with bacon, lettuce, and mayonnaise
on soft white bread.
We will eat under the big blue sky where
gardens grow, and the honey bees buzz.
The countryside is beautiful, the air is fresh and
Freckles the rooster crows good morning.
Where we can make everything perfect
with what’s between two slices of bread.
And we have a Hart to Hart and
live Happily Ever After.”
