The Sweet Smell of Solitude

When I’m inclined to be alone,
Completely solo, on my own,
Sans wife or colleague, friend or boss,
I eat sardines with mustard sauce.

I pop the can; its thick perfume
In nanoseconds clears the room.
It renders many ill and cross
To smell sardines with mustard sauce!

Though others may retreat in haste,
I’m happy I’ve acquired the taste.
If you can’t take it, hey — your loss!
I like sardines with mustard sauce!

  2. A very healthy snack, full of omega 3s if I’ve read right. Think I’ll open a can myself — thanks!
