The Disembodied, Well Embellished Belly Full of Burger King

The Disembodied, Well Embellished Belly Full of Burger King

Here is the second belly poem. Unlike today’s other poem, this is not about a person with a belly. This is about a free standing belly with a life of it’s own. This old advert served as the initial inspiration. The Disembodied, Well Embellished Belly Full of Burger King started essentially as a stream-of-consciousness ramble bordering on nonsense verse ,but a back story gradually started to emerge. In this four line poem, we discover a belly caught in a cruel life of murderous crime. Why? Nobody really knows, but it is often said in hushed tones that the belly was driven mad when it came second in a belly beauty contest and could no longer live with it’s own appearance. It’s quite moving really.

The Disembodied, Well Embellished Belly Full of Burger King

A disembodied, well embellished belly full of Burger King
Fell onto a therapist who never saw or felt a thing
And while you think the well embellished burger belly might be best
It cannot beat a disembodied belly full of chicken breast

Cheesemato anyone?
