An Old-Time Breakfast

An Old-Time Breakfast

 

By Elton Camp



I so fondly recall far “back in the day”

When I could have breakfast “my way”

Eggs sunny-side-up with yolks so raw

And not a sign of Salmonella ever I saw



Wonderful, but greasy bacon in a pan fried

I never knew that from such fat people died

The toast we fixed was never whole wheat,

But with lots of butter it tasted really neat



Now I eat egg whites without any cholesterol

And cook them thoroughly, bad germs to foil

Soy strip bacon may look just about the same,

Not with the taste, isn’t it such a big shame



But it’s the right thing to do without any doubt

A lot better than having my arteries reamed out

Still, I sneak off to Cracker Barrel now and then

And have a breakfast like I had way back when
