I made a most marvelous breakfast
With little bits of leftovers
A piece of grilled chicken from
The lunch I’d taken to Rachel
Only to find that she’d already
Eaten a school lunch meal.
I added a pile of beef brisket
From the Mexican birthday dinner
With my Rachel and her Sweet Sarah,
And then squash, onions and peppers
That Richard had enjoyed for a supper,
And a bit of pimento cheese spread
That was threatening to go to waste.
After beating up a bunch of eggs
Produced by Mamie’s chickens
I poured them over the remnants
Of several remembered repasts.
This became a nice frittata --
Really a meal of memories.
