Liver n' Onions

Take a pound of beef liver

   Shake it in flour

      Chop up one fair sized onion

         Fry in hot skillet

            Turn head and hold nose

                Feed to dog

    How nauseating, Bob!! I am with you in spirit as you hold your nose and cook this gagging delight. Yes, please feed this dish to your dog. I love what PD one can make her eat liver....If I were a contestant on that old tv show Fear Factor and faced with a zillion dollars, maybe then! Great poem....your humor grows and grows and grows!

    What a hoot dear friend, That's the best place for liver. Hope your inspiration didn't come from having to eat it. If people knew it was the body's filter, nobody would eat it. As usual, you never disappoint.

    I would not do something that mean to my poor dog. I hate liver, when I was a kid I refused to eat it. this was a great and very cruel piece you wrote, but it brought a smile as always. thank you for commenting on A Dusty Road Have I Walked. and yes back is doing a little better, just have to be careful.

    Lol! This is a hoot! You had me going there, Bob. I thought this was one of those genteel cookery lessons right up to the last few lines. I actually laughed out loud at this one!!! I have a feeling you will be adding to your "winners medals" in this contest! Robert.
