Lowly Muse the Sandwich Be

I’ve never been a big fan of the sandwich. It’s just too much bread for me. Despite its reputation as the staff of life, bread, for me, is just unnecessary filler. True to my feelings about bread, I’ve composed a few lackluster verses. My heartfelt apologies are offered in advance.



Attempt One


Lowly muse the sandwich be

Stale bread that’s hard to bite

Rapacious is my will to pen

But the structure’s just not right



Attempt Two


Weakness at the central core

Brave walls on either side

If not for strength of structure

We’d have no place to hide



Attempt Three


A mighty foe the Devil

The deep blue sea is mean

Love lies windblown on the beach

Sandwiched in between




To all that made it through this post, thank you. I will attempt to do a little better next time.


Peace, Love,

And Bon Appetit

  3. I especially enjoyed the second piece (it’s so much more than just an ‘attempt’). Well written and certainly so universally accessibly that you’d be hard-pressed to think that such a strong metaphor came from a lowly sandwich.

    i liked the last one best…metaphorically it stomped on the other two… but they were also good, telling me you had more to say on the subject than you thought.

    I agree the meat is the best part… of the sandwich, I mean

    Sandwiches are boring
    When you make them with bread,
    So try lettuce or cake
    Or tortillas instead!

    I sincerely love the line “lowly muse the sandwich be.” Many seem to be struggling with this word today.
