Braised Himalayan Rabbit

There's an eatery here in my hometown I'd heard about, That features exotic wild animal fare so I thought I'd check it out! I perused the menu and here are a few examples of its bizarre cuisine: Slow-broiled and marinated Indian elephant spleen; Delectable bar-be-qued Texas style rib of rattlesnake; Tender sixteen-ounce portions of grilled hippopotamus steak; Choice butterflied pork tender-loin from corn-fed por(k)cupine; Wild Arkansas boars' feet boiled and pickled in spicy brine; Fresh flown-in daily from Alaska, deep-fried buzzards' gizzards; Finely sliced sauteed tongue of Komodo Dragon lizards! I decided to order an enticing delicacy that really caught my eye; 'Twas a dish called Braised Himalayan Rabbit that I thought I'd try! I asked the server about its origin and its preparation mode. "First" said she, "we find him-a-layin' on the road!" (At that I stifled a roiling barf and from there I quickly strode!)

Thankfully, no such place exists, Andrea! A fictional write but thanks for your comments. My 2 daughters and I have been celebrating my 92d birthday this weekend on the 29th of Oct. Never dreamed I'd make it this far! Best to you - Bob H

Thank you, Jeff. Hey, I like the name Road Kill Cafe - very appropriate name for that slumgullian joint! Best to you as you continue your poetical journey - Bob H
