Open Pit

Smells so good,
Barbeques after

A swim, raw meat

On an open pit,
Slathered thick
With seasonings
And sweet sauce,
Cooked just right.


Sitting nearby,
My dog drools,
And just before
I take my first bite
One of my guests
Reminds me that
In some third
World countries
They eat dogs...


Suddenly, I
Lose my appetite
And grab a salad.
