Hear the sound of a sizzling pan!
Sweet aromas hang so high.
Oh, bacon -- the perfect food for man.

No better food from box, neither from can
could even the richest buy.
Hear the sound of a sizzling pan!

Observe the red slices with stripes of tan.
The hues will darken as I fry.
Oh, bacon -- the perfect food for man.

Across the stove, the strips do span.
They pop and crackle, the feast is nigh.
Hear the sound of a sizzling pan!

I feel the heat, I turn the fan
but carefully, not to make it dry.
Oh, bacon -- the perfect food for man.

The time is up, and now I scan
my kitchen, grease-covered. I might cry.
Hear the sound of a sizzling pan!
Oh, bacon -- the perfect food for man.

I decided to write a villanelle about bacon. What more is there to say?
