Ode to Toast, by Dominic Bonuccelli
O Most Vile Toast of Reckoning:
You leer at me thru garments of crust and butter
As though you know me better than myself.
CLANG! PING! The knife and fork about you;
Meek you seem, yet I have seen the beast
That lies so silently beneath.
And I, the Jam of Life, wait withal –
Take Me, you most Merciless Bread of Breads,
Spread me as your condiment concubine!
I Damn You, Toast! I Damn You!
