No. 283



Full English Romance. (Re-edited) By CpSingleton © 2014


Egg and sausage wanted to marry.

There love was pure.

Based not only on the colour and

The fullness of her yolk or on

His length and girth and hue.


There love was erected on

The stability of four strong pillars,

Each promoting their expressive flag.


The first pillar represented the faith

They both had in each other.

No amount of boiling oil or

Burning flame could destroy it.


The second pillar denoted the

Strength of their compassion.

There wasn’t a mountain of toast or

River of beans they wouldn’t find a way across

To save an innocent hash brown,

Or an abused and maligned

Black pudding, stuck under the

Force of a fried bread crust.


The third shined brightly for honesty.

For without the honesty they shared

They would be merely two lost articles

Of a larger breakfasting world.




Four stood proudly for resilience

In a world where solitary sausages and

Elegant eggs were

Persecuted by scorching heat and

Stabbed mercilessly by

Prongs of the sharpest stainless steel, but


To fall in love with one of

Different food stocks was

To open widely the ketchup floodgates!


They stood before that deluge!

Their loving arms spread wide;

Their unwavering fingers interlaced,


Knowing that not even a

Cumberland ring and an ostrich egg

Could come between them!


The mushrooms were in awe,

The tomatoes swooned and

The bacon formed a path for their escape.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
