A play on the Emily Dickinson poem Because I could not stop for Death -

Because I could not stop for Lunch -
It kindly stopped for me -
The Roach Coach held just sandwiches -
Ham and Bologna.

I slowly browsed -I knew no haste
And I had put away
My hammer and my shovel too,
For its moldy bread -

I paused before a 3 tier sandwich
Swelling with Roast Beef -
The top was covered with mayonnaise -
The Center - mustard oozing out -

I gave the man all my cash
For that scrumptious prize -
Then I proceeded to eat up
Much to my demise -

I grabbed a pail and started to puke
What I'd just consumed -
I shall now avoid that coach
From now till Eternity -

Clever, if a bit gross. Nice job.

Ewe, I always avoided the roach coach. Better to bring peanut butter crackers with you at all times than eat crap. Don't fool yourself, just because you survived hostilities from around the world doesn't mean you are immune to greedy ignorance. Like in food poisoning.
