Pithy Poems About Food

The Bean Burrito

Oh bean burrito,
Oh bean burrito,
You’re oh so neato.
You need no meato.

Dear reader, you can tell
Today, I’m fond of doggerel.
Just don’t put that meatel
In this, my bean burritel.



Oh hamburger! Oh hamburger!
Recession proof, yet so yummy.
Gastric juices assault you
In my tummy.

Restaurants making fillet mignon
Are awash in red.
But McD’s is in the green with
Beef and bread.

In hard times, such as these,
People buy more burgers
Because they’re cheap and tasty.

But when times get better,
We shall go restaurant hopping.
Because we can.
Maybe we’ll even rhyme.



I’m so hungry.
I will have to eat something
Or I will get hungrier.


– Paul De Lancey, The Comic Chef

    You have to write one about borshch. Yeah, I know – it doesn’t rhyme well. But I think you owe it to humanity.
