An Ode To Beans On Toast

Simply delicious beans on toast

One of the meals I love the most

It’s my husbands finest cuisine

He can microwave the beans


and butter toast he makes for me.

No cooking fail it’s so easy.

I bet he feels like a top chef

secretly toasting his success.


Topping my beans with grated cheese

and Worcester sauce my taste buds pleased.

Relishing the tomato sauce

on soggy toast I must endorse


this meal that’s cheap and quick to make,

easy if you can’t cook or bake.

My husband’s pleased, really thrilled

He’s made a meal that hasn’t killed.

My drawing inspired by Frankenstein by Mary Shelley which I recently read.

My thoughts were that it was a very sad story about what it means to be human and I felt that the monster had more humanity than his creator  Doctor Frankenstein.
