Villanelle for a Carnivore

I’d cook meat for you

if you said you were hollow

and only meat would do

 

It’s something I never thought I’d do;

saying this is something new,

but I’d cook meat for you

 

I’d cook you chicken, bacon too,

Sushi, sausage, barbecue,

If only meat would do

 

I’d make you a beef and barley stew,

Pork-chops, veal cordon-bleu

I’d cook meat for you

 

I’d cook it up and watch you chew

every bite until you’re through

if only meat would do

 

It’s only you, I thought you knew,

that I’d cook meat for only you,

if only meat would do
