A plot cooked up






Lust and the Cooking Lesson


He simply ran out of time
To practice his hastily learned
Cooking skills
In order to impress her
To try and fail
Was not worth an attempt

So he ordered delivery
And she was none the wiser.

Hours wasted
Weeks planning
Months pining
For those succulent few minutes
That would never tick over.

As fate would dictate
The order was far too late
And not up to expectation
Which she subconsciously
Associated the inadequacies
With him
Doomed to failure.

The eventual outcome
Was perhaps inevitable
The fallout being his appetites
Which sent him to trouble
In the first place.
