Ode To Bacon

My daughter, Josie, is ten years old and in fifth grade.  The last few weeks, they have been studying odes, and one of her assignments was to write an ode of her own.  So here, for your reading pleasure, is her completely unedited, Ode To Bacon.

Ode To Bacon
Josie Murray (Age 10)

O, Bacon,
sizzling in the oven,
you are a taste sensation.
If I had three wishes,
they would all be for you.
When you are cooking,
I can't wait to eat you-
O, Bacon.
I wonder what I would do without you-
O, Bacon.

I will do anything,
anything,
to get you.
You have your soggy saltiness,
your sweet smell,
your laughing fun.
We can frolic through the flowers if you stay with me,
beloved Bacon.
You are like a wild monkey in me,
as tasty as chocolate,
as sweet as me.

O, Bacon,
If only you could be here with me,
nobody but me.
You revive my taste buds from hunger.
You are a person who tanned too long,
in the sizzling summer sun.
You can run,
but you can't hide,
from me especially-
O, Bacon.
