Gardenburger: a poem of devotion
by erin keith

gardenburger, gardenburger
it is you that i greet
when i can't enjoy a barbeque
where they cook lots of meat

the smell is so fantastic,
but i just can not partake,
of the ribs, hamburgers
or even a big fat steak

thank you again for your soy bean goodness
without your mushrooms, rice, and other
i would be in a mess

i can now feel comfortable
and easily blend in
when the meat eaters are also enjoying
their great "din din"

i am a loyal customer
this poem i present to you
now everyone knows
that without you i'd be blue

Interviewer: wow erin, a poem of devotion to gardenburger...but are you REALLY devoted?
Erin: **shifts in her chair** well yes, i have to say that i am.
Int: so what prompted this inspiring peice of literature?
Erin: well, you know my studio has been having barbeques out at irving's house...he's the guy that lives next door to our construction site--and the guy is one hell of a cook...but i could never fully enjoy his culinary arts..as i had to eat dinner before attending.**pause** i'm a vegetarian and we had only purchased meat products.**looks down in shame and shifts again in chair**
Int: Go on...
Erin: well, THIS time we bought gardenburgers so that myself and 2 other vegetarians could also eat dinner there...i felt like i was finally accepted by the meat eaters!! I finally felt the love!!
Int: well there you have it folks...we CAN all get along...
