Your Weekly Politickle: SO’S UMAMI!

Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:

SO’S UMAMI!
When I’m hungry, I do not devour
Something sweet, bitter, salty, or sour:
No, I swallow salami,
That savory tsunami,
Let that pepper my palate empower.

HAPPY VAX-GIVING
In addition to boiled shrimp and crab,
Goose pâté, artichokes, gumbo zab,
Crawfish bisque, and wild rice:
A syringe filled with spice,
’Cause the turkey is getting the jab.
(2021)

LEFTOVERS
Thursday’s carcass long after supplies
Turkey Sandwiches, Stews, and Pot Pies;
Turkey Omelets, Fettucini,
Casseroles, Tetrazzini;
Turkey Gumbo, à la King, and Surprise.
(2011)

OOH LA LA!
A fried turkey injected with spice,
Shrimp-stuffed mirlitons and dirty rice,
Pecan pie, oyster dressing –
How we rush through the blessing!
Yes, a Creole Thanksgiving is nice.
(2008)

Last week’s limerick

DEPENDENT KLAUS
“You’ll own nothing and be happy,”
Says Klaus Schwab, who’s feeling crappy.
Klaus is in a snit
And throwing a fit:
Someone needs to change his nappy.
