Making the Meat Go Farther

by Catfish McDaris

My mama always thought outside the box,
she saw a new product on television called
Hamburger Helper, it looked like dry dog crap

You mixed it with some hamburger and voila,
there was a magic meal in a skillet, my dad
sniffed the air suspiciously, he looked in the
pan and inquired what was stinking so bad

Mama grinned and explained how much money
she saved and how the food would go farther,
dad took one taste, opened the back door and
threw the entire skillet and concoction right over

Our neighbor’s back fence, then said, “Honey,
you sure are right about it going far, now let’s
all go out for some rattlesnake enchiladas.”
