The Devil Eats Pasta

Just for grins!

I saw him just this afternoon

He came to the restaurant and sat in the front window

He didn’t look like Lucifer, but he is

About 5 – 4

with wire frame glasses

round, heavy lenses

A little pudgy but not what you’d call “fat”

Bald, with what hair he has

on the sides and back of his head

worn long, like the fringe around the bottom of a bedspread

His chubby cheeks smooth

like a baby’s bottom

Pasta, he ordered penne pasta with a meat sauce and

Red wine

and, I did the math,

he left a 2.4% tip
