St Brigid Cyberspace Poetry Slam.....the 5th

EXPERIMENT DEGUSTATORY by Ogden Nash

A gourmet challenged me to eat,
At tiny bit of rattlesnake meat,
Remarking, "Don't look horror-stricken.
You'll find it tastes a lot like chicken."
It did.
Now chicken I cannot eat,
Because it tastes like rattlesnake meat.

join the cyberspace slam if you wish. By midnoc 2/2
Thanks to Bianca for the heads up.

We tried rattlesnake and something else - can't recall? - while in Sedona. I don't care much for chicken, and found it to be more like overcooked firm tofu.

Chocolate covered grasshopper,
There is no way to eat them proper.
I gobble them straight from the plate,
I just can't taste the chocolate!
Snakespeare

Sorry I couldn't resist.
