A chunk of white fat


Did you ever open a can of pork and beans and search for the pork? Usually, at least in my case, I have found one disgusting white chunk of fat. Not tasty. I wonder how that can of “pork and beans” might be likened to some things in life. Hype can sound so good. Reality can be so different.

Pork and Beans

Pork and beans:
A marriage made in heaven.

I see the beans,
But, where’s the pork?

All I ever see is a small chunk,
Of white fat.

I wonder:
Is that a metaphor for life?

Bunches of beans.
Where’s the pork?
