Gourmet Baked Beans


Affected by it?
Surely you are kidding!
Monsieur Sang Froid
personified
that’s me, the bloke
who’d rather
flagellate
publically
than show his sentiment.

But look,
I loved the levity,
and hey, a joke’s
a jolly joke,
okay?
So have your
laugh and leave.

Don’t be deceived
or try and say in words
those things you’ll never
comprehend. I’m me,
the author of the lie –
the reason that I wrote
the piece is proved again,
it doesn’t matter why.

It says as clearly as one can,
in simple words –
gourmet baked beans,
and you are fools
who’ll
never
really
under-
stand!
