Steak and bacon pies

by Ozymandias

I think, unless I'm much mistaken,
That that's a pie of steak and bacon:
Now, many a baker, when he's bakin',
Has got a stake in steak and bacon -
Much trouble's taken in the makin'
Of bakers' pies of steak and bacon,
Or customers' tums may soon be achin'
From stale old steak and black-burned bacon;
Or maybe pastry may be flakin'
From unsuccessful excess bakin',
And many a bakery's been forsaken
For flakin' pies of steak and bacon.
Your heart might break if you awaken
To steak and bacon pies mistaken
For scones with icin' for their cakin',
Your confidence would sure be shaken
By bitin' into steak and bacon!
You should make sure no pie is taken
Mistakenly for steak and bacon...

having just read a poem about vegetarians this is a complete turn around, and I have to say I wont be aching for a pie of steak and bacon but your writing had me taken : ) ....a tongue twister indeed and might I add the whole meat pie thing is fairly new to me having come from the states and moved to Australia . In America we eat our pie sweet and this whole thing would not have made any sense to me at all a few years ago.....I would like a scone right about now though : )

    Welcome to Australia.... you'll find many a pie over here, it's almost the national dish!

I think I injured myself reading this..but it was worth it! Masterfully written, and hilarious.

    If you sue me for pain and suffering arising from a twisted tongue, my defence will be contributory negligence on your part for reading it! Wink

      I can't out-lawyer a lawyer..besides, the laughter was worth the pain.

Pork and beef are in the makin'
Of your pie of steak and bacon
For that cow and pig I'm achin'
but I guess that's their mistaken
to be born a steak and bacon!

just love this Oz - bloody hilarious!..

Ozzy - so many twists and turns, I'm dizzy, but I can assure you I was laughing the whole time! Very very clever piece (of steak and bacon)!! Smile

    My wife made the mistake of bakin' a steak and bacon pie - when I heard the phrase, it set me off on a chain of nonsense!

    Thanks Sandy.

    If you read this aloud, you might end up in hospital singing the patient's song as you choked on your twisted tongue! Laughing

    yeah, I'm sort of semi-vegan, only about 1/3 of my meals have meat in them. Maybe this poem will turn more readers into vegans! Thanks Anna.

And to think, I haven't had my brekkie yet!
I think I smell bacon cookin' in the kitchen...
Now I'm salivatin' (or droolin')...
This is just hilarious, my friend - Mary Ann

    I should have issued a warning. It's dangerous to salivate or giggle while eating steak and bacon pies. Could cause you to choke on the bacon. And I ain't fakin!!

    Thanks mon amie!

G'day Rory...
loved the twists and turns in this poem. Tongue twisters are harder to recite when your giggling.
I might just slip down to the grunt and moo bakery now.
Thanks Rory.
