My Sleek and Shining Bacon

My Sleek and Shining Bacon

How I miss it, how I pine
Smell so luscious, taste divine
my sleek and shining bacon!

My wife, you see, with no holds barred
Has just declared a war on lard.
We're not to buy, or eat or shit
A single piddling piece of it.

"How can we live?" I cry "Alack!"
"without the meat from piggies back?"
But she is firm in her blockade,
There will no cassoulet be made
Nor quiche Lorraine, nor ham and eggs
Not even porc pâté
How I miss it, how I pine
Smell so luscious, taste divine
my sleek and shining bacon!
