Each to His Own Taste

Each to His Own Taste

 

By Elton Camp



For eating raw meat I surely don’t care

But I have some friends who order it rare



There are some who simply adore pate

I refuse to eat food produced that way



To many, sushi is a gourmet’s delight

But I can hardly abide it within my sight



Way over in China, it’s dogs that they eat

And some greedily devour chicken feet



Some folks taste runs to eating of veal

I find a cow’s little calf too hard to steal



Others, over chitlins, will just have a fit

I can’t eat something that smells like shit



Pickled hog feet I often see in the store

That’s another that I absolutely abhor



The meat market sells pig’s tails & ears

That I’d vomit, such fare bring on fears



And I hear there are people who eat rat

And even skin and cook a fleabag cat



“Each to his own taste,” the man did vow

As he tenderly kissed his old milk cow
