Ode to the Frozen Burrito
(and other microwaveable meals)
Oh, yon frozen burrito-
So full of beans
And … meat?
Purchasable in bulk or a la carte,
Your mass will sear my mouth,
Fill my stomach,
And keep my GI tract busy for days to come.
And yet, I shall never regret your consumption;
‘Twas in the middle of a scene of the highest excitement-
Sparks sparking, dialogue dialoguing, bad guys bad-guying …
My stomach rumbling.
I needed to eat-
‘Twas pretty sure I ate sometime the day before-
But did not want to spare the time.
Hark! Off to the freezer!
Grab well-wrapped package of questionable meat-products,
Plunk into fair microwave for obligatory two minute cooking time.
Hark! Ideas are raining!
Mind is churning!
Back to the computer,
I pause for a moment,
To partake of your offerings.
But at least it was fast.
