The Meatball

I'm a meatball in a sub, With three others just like me, We are warmed by tomato sauce, And a blanket made of cheese. The roll is our surrounding house, Handled by a man, Shivering at a football stadium, While sitting in the stands. My best friends will soon leave me, One by one as I watch the teeth, Overreach each sphere of nutrients, Devouring what's beneath. This is what I was born to do, so I will not be afraid, Munch, munch, munch. Oh what a glorious day! 18-September-2021

You are a fun poet! Thanks for the laugh! I love a good meatball sub. My sister and brother-in-law make the best ones. They owned a sub shop for a bit!

That’s what my cousin calls the 80-20% - 80% funny, 20% fall flat.

Thanks, the meatball sub I bought at the supermarket had an opening in the wrapping, so rather than eating it, I wrote a poem... So it didn't completely go to waste!

It hurts when I laugh and I laugh when I cry. Thanks for the lost B side Beatles tune.
