I'll Take a Mess of Fried Possum Innards

I’ll Take a Mess of Fried

Possum Innards

 

By Elton Camp



The mountain family made its annual trip to town

It was with their horse and wagon they got around

Sometimes it sort of got them into an awkward tight

Since not a one of them had learned to read or write



They were drawn to McDonald’s by its good smell

What they could buy there they had no way to tell

Jake said, “I’ll just ask fer a big pot of turnip greens.

They should most shorely know just what I mean.”



But that request the server met with a blank stare

The family decided that they didn’t serve it there

“Then I’ll have some sow belly with pinto beans.

After all, that’s jest about as good as turnip greens.”



“Sir, all that we have to sell is listed on the menu.

To order from that is what I suggest that you do.”

Jake didn’t want to admit he couldn’t read a word

And was glad when his younger brother he heard



“Jake, some fried chitlings sound good to me.

Why not order that and we’ll see how it be.”

Finally, in frustration, the family drove away

Hoping to find another place to eat that day
