Bl-ink and you’ll miss it…

Here is the penultimate installment of my Kerner/Rorschach Tribute Haiku Series. By the Power of Grayskull!!!

So, we are down to the final three and they start to get a bit more colourful from here. I would definitely go to a zoo which had laser firing, Walkers cheese and onion eating tigers. And a butterfly house.

So, after a brief hiatus, I am now ready to dedicate my every waking moment to bringing you Part 2 of my Kerner/Rorschach Tribute Haiku Series. I struggled a bit with this one but my recently begun mission to re-watch every X-Files episode has been a source of useful inspiration here. I am sure Spielberg and Cameron will be fighting over the rights to this…

Breakfasts should be seasoned not herbed…

I don’t want herbs on my breakfast 

It’s something that should not be done 

No garnish is needed upon bacon bap

(or muffin, roll, barmcake or bun)

Although controversial, I quite like to have

My hash browns swapped out for some chips

But scatter no rosemary upon the top

Or they shall not be passing my lips!

A sausage that’s simple and meaty

For breakfasting roles can’t be beat

Please don’t use Lincolnshire or Cumberland 

I do not want herbs in my meat

I don’t want snipped chives sprinkled on my fried egg

Or chopped parsley framing the scene

It’s almost as bad as one’s toast being spread

Not with butter, but cheap margarine 

Tarragon should be gone from my mushrooms 

Basil is banned from my beans

It’s oregaNO for my grilled tomato

On my breakfast, herbs should not be seen

So, please don’t put herbs on my breakfast

It’s not ‘gastro’, not ‘posh’ and not nice

Just ketchup or brown sauce, a dusting of salt

Black pepper’s fine too; it’s a spice
