Barbecuing Everything

“With summer comes the inevitable barbecue. As a chef I love to marinade some steak and chicken. Season up some burger patties and get them all on the hot coals. Here’s the thing I follow health and safety to the letter. The Barbecue is the most dangerous way to cook. Please do not use lighter fluid or any other flammable liquid to light your coals. Buy a quick light bag and charcoal and stack those. A simple match will have you cooking without fear of explosion in a few minutes. barbecue safely and have a great summer my friends. Oh and watch out for this guy!!”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompts:

Ragtag Daily Prompt — Burn
Word of the Day — Simple

Barbecuing Everything!

It was a simple task
Please light the barbecue
Not much to ask
Who knew chaos would ensue

We had burgers plump and juicy
Barbecue away grill lover
A mat of deliciousness ready for tea
Nope, we had to duck and cover

In his slipshod way
He used a gallon of lighter fuel
But thought it okay
The explosion was heard in Blackpool

The lawn was toast
He incinerated a window ledge
A gnome become a ghost
The barbecue landed in a hedge

I wrote this poem anonymous
After the garden flambee
Him and arson are now synonymous
Now, we’re having takeaway

Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!
