Familiaro: Poetry Monday


Italian Cold Cut Sliders, mini cold cut sandwiches with big flavor. Great for lunch, dinner, or tailgating. | recipe developed by | #recipe #sandwich


Poetry Monday's once a week.
I bet you know which day.
I don't participate every time,
But today I've come out to play.

My friends assign each week a theme,
Peculiar People's what they chose.
Now it's up to all of us,
to put our thoughts into prose.
Whenever I go out, I see,
peculiar folk here and there.
Hard to remember to shut my jaw,
and not to . . . you know . . . stare.

Like why would anybody shop,
it just seems so bizarre,
wearing what can only be
described as her peignoir?

Speaking of the clothes some wear,
I find it quite uncanny,
who would buy those pants that have,
words written on the fanny?

And when I'm in the food court,
it seems both gross and weird,
a grown man publicly eating,
what's been stuck inside his beard.

Italian Cold Cut Sliders
But I may do a thing or two,
that others might call strange.
If not quite THAT outside the realm,
perhaps in the "strange" range?

'Cause there is a thin line in between,
what you see as bizzarro,
and that which I've been doing so long,
to me, it's familiaro.

So if you see something that's odd,
and the "notable" person is me,
please don't say I'm peculiar,
individualistic! That's what you see.

  1. This recipe sounds like a keeper!

  2. Hahahaha! Yep. I'm 'individualistic' as well...
    Very well done!

  3. You must be shopping at Walmart! Love a good cold cuts sandwich but never considered sliders! Yummy!

  4. Wal-Mart, today's temple of fashion. At least I'm spared the food court experience, given that our local mall has never (believe it or not) had one. Alana

  5. We're all just a bit peculiar in our own way. Unique is another good term, and i like individualistic, it jas a certain panache about it.

  6. Individualistic - now that's a good word. I liked your poem, but oh, the pictures inside my head ;)
