An Ode To Spam

Spam, this is for you (found these juicy morsels lying around the internet...)

1.
Blue can of steel
What promise do you hold?
Salt flesh so ripe

2.
Can of metal, slick
Soft center, so cool, moistening
I yearn for your salt

3.
Twist, pull the sharp lid
Jerks and cuts me deeply but
Spam, aah, my poultice

4.
Silent, former pig
One communal awareness
Myriad pink bricks

5.
Clad in metal, proud
No mere salt-curing for you
You are not bacon

6
And who dares mock Spam?
You? you? you are not worthy
Of one rich pink fleck

7.
Like some spongy rock
A granite, my piece of Spam
In sunlight on my plate

8.
Little slab of meat
In a wash of clear jelly
Now I heat the pan

9.
Oh tin of pink meat
I ponder what you may be:
Snout or ear or feet?

10.
In the cool morning
I fry up a slab of Spam
A dog barks next door

11.
Ears, snouts and innards
A homogenous mass
Pass another slice

12.
Old man seeks doctor
"I eat Spam daily", he says.
Angioplasty

13.
Highly unnatural
The tortured shape of this "food"
A small pink coffin

14.
Pink beefy temptress
I can no longer remain
Vegetarian
