Poem-a-Day April 2018 Writer’s Digest Challenge #6. Theme: Food


A carpetbagger & a scalawag came to Alabama,
Sweet & Savory were their names.
When they double-crossed a cracked Southern belle,
who’d been banged a little too hard,
& a Connecticut Yankee,
who’d sneezed his nasally r’s into his hankie,
the Reb took Savory & buttered him up,
while the Yank plundered Sweet
as if her name was Atlanta,
for grits with sugar “just ain’t right.”
