They Are Recalling What

They Are Recalling What?

By Elton Camp

It made a good breakfast, I think
There’s nothing like a sausage link

Combined with eggs and grits
With my day, it exactly fits

Now they’d like to get it back
Of rubber gloves, they lost track

Into the sausage they got ground
That’s why they’re not around

I’d return them, but don’t know how
As they are too far out of reach now

Do my guts now contain a rubber ball?
If so, I certainly can’t feel it at all

Of one thing I don’t have any doubt 
Given some time, it will bounce right out

    It isn't the entire country, but Alabama is one of the states that got the contaminated product. The recall was announced just this morning. The gloves were actually plastic, not rubber like I used in the little poem. Elton
