On May 1,1897
petite Lucia disappeared
after arguing with her husband
"The Italian Sausage King"

Rumor has it
she was ground into sausage
her bones boiled
in a vat full of acid

His downfall came
when the police found
part of a skull and her wedding ring
at the bottom of the vat

It is said, her ghost
roams the northeast
side of Chicago
looking for her home

May 1, 2006

"Hi, neighbor."
"Sure, I can spare a cup of sugar."
"Come, sit, have some coffee
and we'll talk."

"Would you like to have lunch with me?"
"There's some homemade sausage
grilling old family recipe."
"I have fresh baked buns and some steamed peppers and onions."

"Where's my husband, you ask?"
"He went hunting with friends."
"Have a bite...mmmmm...delicious."
"Would you like potato salad with that?"

Later that night

Thanks Wanda...
I wanted this to be weirdly funny...I found this story on google. Originally The Sausage King was a German fellow...but since I am part Italian I changed that so I could bring the story up to the present time ..I do love a good murder mystery...Just remember this...It might take awhile but you always get caught...again thanks....Kacee

Love this twist
I like historical pieces, or at least poems that use a historical "hook". This is well done -- don't know if I'll eat sausage after this.

MMMM.... thanksgiving. I'll stick with the turkey and smashed 'taters this time.

Thanks BW,
Didn't mean to turn you against sausage...Aw , it will clog your arteries anyhow...A nice slice of turkey breast is better for you...How do you like the way I added the potato salad? A twist on," Would you like fries with that?"...Happy Thanksgiving...Kacee

Kate and Sidney
is what my cockney friend Caroline calls steak and kidney pie, rhyming slang which apparently originated after some grizzly murders of a similar bent in London's East End during the Second World War... So she claims at any rate... Showed her this today and she was delighted... You've got a great gift for writing these murder mystery/ true-crime poems, your wicked sense of humour appeals. Still...

glad I'm a vegan.

Thanks for this Kacee, you made me smile and you just plain made Caroline's day.

Kidneys and Liver aren't my thing....Yuck!!
Shannon and Caroline, Thanks very much ...I'm glad someone likes my dark sense of humor...Most of my family and friends just think I'm a weird-ooo...My youngest son however loves it...That's my Baby!!!
I appreciate your comments...thanks for reading...Kacee

Hello Jimmy Hoffa!
Gee Kacee, you've set me wondering just what is in those sausage and pepper rolls that they sell by the thousands at the Italian Feasts on Mulberry street in NYC!....Jimmy Hoffa perhaps?????

Still laughing,
