AFTER BAKING SWEET ITALIAN SAUSAGE

AFTER BAKING SWEET ITALIAN SAUSAGE…

The apartment was already hot,

We decided to clean the oven….

Fumes were what we got

Which got smoke detectors alarming!

We opened all the windows–

It was eighty degrees outside–

I fanned the detectors with a dirty T-shirt

And hoped the noise would subside.

We woke to the TV going,

At least I did from sleep…

That self-cleaning oven was slowing

And I had appointments to keep!

(The sausage, by the way, was a little overcooked…but edible.)
