I borrowed the title
from a poem I saw,
it was called ‘This Poem is,
well, what do you think
it was called, ‘… This Poem is…
About to Explode!’?
(Which title I have now ear-marked for later).
Anyway, what makes this poem,
as oposed to that poem,
(which I am not, oposed to it, I mean)
what makes this poem,
different from that Vegan poem?
And, BTW (by the way)
can I just say here,
that I ask questions,
yet I very rarely answer them.
But, in this case,
the other poem was
a ‘good’ poem,
whereas this one…
won’t eat pheasants
now he’s dead;
and, when alive, he was a Vegan,
so he ate beans instead –
I may have made that up,
it’s the sort of thing I do,
I’m a writer, and a poet,
and a singer,
‘How d’you do?’
sat at tables,
whilst the fruits
played their flutes;
the vegetables gave them a round of applause,
and the fruits bowed low.
The evening was a total success,
and there was very little mess –
which was nice to know.
Butterbean Barley Buddha Bowl (#Vegan Poetry)
Would you like…
a Butterbean Barley Buddha Bowl?
I’d like to be able to say it.
There’s a lady on the seashore, she sells them.
Replacement Egg Service

Could all travellers please be reminded that purchasers of any of our “egg” combination sandwiches will still be required to eat their purchases in Carriage E, where the air conditioning is currently working at a staggering 75% efficiency level. Thank you for listening, and please enjoy your journey.
My Vegan Poem
My Vegan Poem
contains no owls
but, it does contain vowels
and consonants –
it would look rather silly
with owls and cormorants in,
“Veg an’ Two Veg, please?”
When there is one last fish in an ocean,
One last cow in a field;
will the people then have a notion,
that the cost was worth more than the yield.
When there are no more Dodos in Tesco;
when a shamb shank is all that they sell;
when your mixed-up grill,
is just a mixed-up girl,
packing your biscuits in twos –
‘and the animals went
… and there were none of them left in the morning’.
My Vegan Couplet (because Haikus are ‘so’ long-winded).
For plant-based food, that hits the spot,
try Kind in Looe, you’ll like what they’ve got.
Nooch – Another Vegan Haiku (because people seem to like them).
it’s a beast of many horns –
no, only joking.
