DAY ONE is out!

Happy Book Release Day to Bill Cameron!

In honor of this joyous occasion, I've written a poem about the thing Bill loves best in all the world.

*clears throat*

BACON: A POEM (with apologies to Joyce Kilmer)

I think that I shall never eat
A food as yummy as this meat.

Bacon fried, so crisp and salty,
(Try it with a choc'late malty!)

Porky goodness upon my plate,
Awaiting there, my yen to sate.

And, lo, my eager mouth is prest
Against the thing that I love best.

If only I could make it last!
Alas, it's disappearing fast.

Breakfast splendor inhaled by me,
Bacon is better than a tree!

Now, if that doesn't inspire you to go buy a copy of DAY ONE, I don't know what will. ;)


Elisabeth Black said...

Ahaha!!! My children are learning the tree poem. I like yours better.

Bill Cameron said...

Oh. My. Gawd. I am in <3.

Janet Reid said...

This will be my new signature line:
And, lo, my eager mouth is prest
Against the thing that I love best.

wv (no kidding!): forker!

Linda G. said...

Elisabeth -- My sympathies to your children. And thanks! :)

Bill -- Gee, you're easy. ;)

Janet -- THE Janet Reid? Commenting on my humble little blog? I'm not worthy! What can I say? Your clients are awesome sauce. :)

This is GENIUS.

Plus it's in honor of bacon, so win!

Linda G. said...

Kelly -- LOL! I love it. :)

Suze -- Thank you kindly. And, yes, bacon. Who can go wrong with bacon? ;)


LOL, funniest freakin' thing I've read all day.

Now I not only need to get my hands on DAY ONE, I need some BACON!

Linda, thanks for nothing. I'm on a diet you know!! (Oink.) No pun intended!
Just kidding. Very, very funny (as usual)..I mean, for a spammer! :)

Cynthia Reese said...

I am SO glad I had bacon this morning! Otherwise, I would be cravin' both the book & the bacon!

Linda G. said...

Tawna -- Just wash your hands before you turn the pages. Be a shame to get such a fine book all greasy. ;)

Muffy (tee-hee) -- Bacon. Spam. What's the diff? ;)

Cynthia -- Funny, whenever I see you online I start craving fried chicken. ;)
