    Flying Pigsfeet

    Ann had cooked the pigsfeet. Cat and Alice brought the steaks.
    Clare arrived with vegees and Sarah's tasty cakes.
    Family members talked and laughed before we took our seat.
    The house was filled with smells of food. I couldn't wait to eat.

    It was a lavish dinner on the eve of Halloween.
    The table was bedecked with food. What a scrumptious scene !
    We all sat down and bowed our heads while Pete, he said the grace.
    Then everyone began to eat at a wondrous tasty pace.

    The steak was tender, the vegees right, can't wait for cake and pie.
    Poured hotsauce on my pigsfeet when something caught my eye.
    All plates began to tremble. The food commenced to fling.
    Shocked I was by an eerie sight. The pigsfeet sprouted wings !

    They hovered over table. The guests were wide-eyed shocked.
    Pigsfeet began to chase us like an evil was unlocked.
    One divebombed and landed on top of Cat's combed hair.
    She dropped her purse and started cursing "Get the hell out there !".

    Another raced cross the room colliding on Ray's thigh.
    The one I saw came straight at me and barely missed my eye.
    The dinner was delicious but no longer was it fun.
    The guests had bolted from their chairs and now were on the run.

    No sooner had they started, then silence made them STOP !
    They peered around the corner and the pigsfeet all had dropped.
    What made them fly's a question. The answer ? Not routine.
    But we think Twilight Zone had landed here on Halloween !
    Well, that was last night's dinner. But our fears continue on
    'cause we have breakfast invites and my stomach's not too strong.

    Before you eat those peas and corn, toast or slice of beef,
    before you roast those chicken legs, look well at what you eat.
    If it turns its head or winks and you miss that single cue,
    you’ll think you’re hot and smelling good
    but it’s YOU that’s in the stew !

    When the pigsfeet sprouted wings, hahaha, LOL. I was looking for you to answer why they flew...the Twilight Zone? Nah, I wouldn't be interested in another meal there either. Well written, as per your usual, and this gave me a much needed laugh poet, thank you.

    Rich – I never got to the french fries and slaw. But what the heck! There were some biscuits and gravy left over along with a Sprite. Hey! Do we really know what we’re eating nowadays ? Moreover! Do we know what’s eating us nowadays ? Glad this put a flava on ya Rich. Namyh
    P.S. – Oh Man! now I gotta sweep up all this mess on the floor.

    SEE...

    hanging around to see what happened to who would not have been on my agenda. neither would a thought of a.m. breakfast invites.:)

    i remember a time when we raised our own foods...and knew what we were eating...and, yes, pigsfeet were definitely on the menu.

    THANKS POET...for terror foods 101.

    this was good.

    Waz – It was as if a door had been unlocked by the key of someone’s imagination into a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight and a dimension of mind. It was almost as if we were moving into a land of both shadow and substance even things and ideas and then crossed over where, for a moment, I thought I saw a signpost up ahead that said “Eat Here Instead” on a building near a dim street in the remote section of the city called…….the “Pigsfeet Zone”.(LOL) Thanks Waz.
