Tasty Pies

Tasty Pies

 

What does Ma Richards bake in tasty pies?
Only the most elite ingredients.
Here her advantage, pie fans, is immense.
Into her pies go little fetal eyes
And crunchy femurs of prenatal size
And brains and spines and hearts and livers. Hence
The flavor, so distinctive and intense!
On the top, there’s a glaze of feeble lies.
Perhaps you disapprove. Hey, don’t complain!
For human tissues have known far worse fates.
This way, some part of them will yet remain
Profitable when sold at steady rates.
In People magazine, and not in vain,
A whole admiring culture celebrates.

 

—Tom Riley
