I Relish It

I take one look and I know for sure
The time is right for this will cure
The ailing moment knocking at my door

My next move is I wonder to fix it
How will I dress it 
This thing before me

Long wet and ready
It is hot and steamy
Too hot to handle with hands alone

How will I dress it
It is all before me
Ready and waiting

I spot it and reach
And make the application
I make my first move with closed eyes

My hands make the instinctive move
I open my mouth to receive this thing
And take the first bite

I say to myself
Yes oh yes
This will surely do

My hunger will be satisfied
With this hot dog from beginning to end
That is why I Relish It

this is my One Shot Wednesday post...hop on over to check out others

Oh yes! And lunch time is still hours away :( Perhaps this says more about me than you...but my thoughts were headed a totally different direction in the beginning! Great write :)

Nice extended metaphor. I especially appreciate the pun on "relish."
