One man’s meat is another man’s true love: Mac Eagan has arrived


There’s a lot at steak in Mac Eagan’s entre’.  I came to the conclusion having read the first line that it was about Browning burgers, but it was not automatic. I will send a $5 gift certificate for McDonald’s to the best foodie puns left in the comment boxes.  You cannot, however, make any reference to a Big Mac, except of course if you are Mac Eagan.  A fun poem from a serious writer!


A Love Poem: My Heart, It Burns Because of You

by Mac Eagan

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee ground and grilled, with coal-black lines

Seared across your front and your back, served on a steamed bun

With ketchup, mustard, mayo,

Onion and tomato,

Bread and butter pickle and a slice of mild cheddar.

I love thee crumbled and browned in a rich sauce

Of tomato with garlic, basil, oregano and coarsely chopped mushrooms,

Ladled with love over thin spaghetti (or sometimes angel hair).

I love thee as a filet, tightly wound with multiple strips of bacon

And displayed proudly next to garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus.

How do I love thee? In an untold number of ways

But these are certainly three of my favorites.

BEEF – It’s what I’m having for dinner.

Men men men men manly men men men
Men men men men manly men men men

    I am sad no more,
    Eagan is at my door
    Tickling my nose
    I don’t pose a vegan.
    Keep the five I hate that dive
    Rather eat Wellington
    Terrific show Mac
    Full of surprises,
    Best of the bunch
    The Med-Rare snack.

  2. Diane Cresswell says:

    A Mac attack of remorseless proportion,
    Written in detailed hammy devotion.
    Filled with aPEAsing visions taste buds chatter
    Moochas Eagan for words that do not make us fatter!
    You did it so good!!!

    You can tuna piano but you can’t mention a Big Mac? Soda correct answer would be Hot Dog!

    Okay, here goes: What do you call a man with no arms and no legs on a grill? Frank.
    What’s his wife’s name? Patty.

    Let the groans begin….

    Oh Mac. I’ve read this so many times just trying to think of something clever. Instead I went to Burger Lounge to enjoy my yearly organic burger…with everything on it. Yes. I thought of you!

    Tried to read this twice, the third time I made it, as I taped a paper towel below my lower lip.

    I am a total carnivoire………..
