I’m here to share this tale with you, Still quite traumatized…
Of an event that happened in a flash, Before my very eyes.
It dates back to the winter,
My first Miami trip,
When I met this super sandwich,
Whos ingredients did not jip.
Inside a fresh croissant,
Lie prosciutto and mozzarella…
In one fell swoop, with just one bite,
Deep in love I fell.
Do I eat it all? Save leftovers?
I was stuck in quite a jam…
Before finishing this work of art,
I snapped a pic for Instagram.
Fast forward to November,
So we meet again.
I didn’t even need a menu,
Despite how long it’s been.
Sandwich in hand, smile on face,
I skipped down to the sand…
Little did I know, that this decision
Was the beginning of the end.
“Look how many friends you’ve made”
Said Sandra, about the birds…
I realized then the danger I was in,
“Oh Shit!” Being my final words.
They inched nearer and nearer,
As I tried to swat them away…
But these harsh fowl did not back down,
Much to my dismay.
The head honcho soon squacked his call,
The leader of the pack.
The most terrified I’ve ever been,
Was the target of a bird attack.
Lettuce to the left, tomato to the right,
Feathers flying everywhere!
Even after the sandwich was devoured,
They still swarmed within my hair!
There was no escaping them,
I ran what felt like miles!
And the bystanders that witnessed it all,
Were nothing but laughs and smiles.
My friend, just sipping coffee,
Was in danger by association.
This attack on the both of us,
Led to hours of conversation.
We said our goodbyes, cursed the birds,
And prayed for our dear lives.
Then suddenly a godsend,
Put an end to all our strifes.
A couple way down yonder,
Proudly opened up their lunch bag.
The birds quickly took notice,
Finding brand new pray to hag.
So here is what I learned from this,
The lesson I can teach…
Don’t be the fool to try and eat
Your sandwich on the beach.
