NAPOWRIMO Day 3: Prosciutto Bandits

NAPOWRIMO Day 3: Prosciutto Bandits

Hold me closer Tony Danza
The reason I breed is you
I want you to take me like a beef in the night
I’m just a girl/A little hungry

Christ had toast/ Christ had toast
Your lemonade stand is hard to keep clean
Hell if I know/I’m a skater/a burrito yeah!
You can call me green bean

Last night I dreamt of soft bagels
Dreams of war/dreams of lies/dreams of dragon’s fire/and of baked apple pie
Gene Kelly/Fred Astaire/Gingivitis everywhere
The cross-eyed bear that you gave to me

All that she wants is another bagel
Slam your body down/The wine is all around
Pour the wine/like a child
And when we done, I make him buy me lo mein

I have lost my weiner/haven’t forgotten my way home
Never fear/Wherever you are/I believe the hot dogs go on
Give me the Beach Boys, and free my soul
Ain’t nothing but a party

Author’s Note: NaPoWriMo Prompt – “Write a list poem with all made up band names.” I chose to write a poem with all misheard lyrics. And, I always wanted to start a band called “Prosciutto Bandits.”
