In-between bread


Image from Citarell's Restaurant website.

In-between two slices of bread,
is the stuff of life some have said.

Lunchbags are filled with salty and sweet,
but not without grain filled, with lettuce, cheese and meat.

Wrapped in wax paper, saran or in foil -
this portable meal has a way of delivering joy.

Perhaps peanut butter and jelly is the best,
it pays no attention to age like some of the rest.

Baloney, salami, capicola and spam -
is it still lunch meat if it come from a can?

Pickles of dill and mayo that's real,
help to bring out taste that clinches the deal.

Then there is banana, honey and Fluff,
when you've had way to much of the other stuff.

My tastes and flavors for sandwiches are many, you see.
The love of a sandwich is something thats not on the in-between.

The troubles of life can be many that's true,
but sitting down with a friend over a sandwich,
has a way putting things together
and pulling you through.
