This poem perfectly describes the eating of an oyster. Anything else is in your mind......!
Not to be taken seriously - I just temporarily lost the poem I intended to post.

To the neophyte it can be a daunting challenge

to unlock the enigma of the oyster

and taste the secret within.

Once the knack is learned, eating the Oyster

will become the sublime pleasure.


First apply light pressure at the point

Where two halves join. See beads of

Released moisture anoint the bearded lips.


Now the shell may be opened.

Prise the halves apart with deft touch

and bow your head to sip liquor

smooth as nacre and tasting

of mermaids' kisses. Next seperate

the flesh and reach with seeking tongue,

probe slowly as if looking for a pearl.


Savour with pleasure silken texture,

Enjoy the salt - smacked taste without haste.

Allow the tongue to linger and explore

the interior of the shell until with a shudder

of satisfaction the act concludes.

The Oyster is eaten.

Some prefer digging where they hide,
Some rather have 'em on the side,
Some love 'em shucked and dried,
Lector like his battered and fried.
