Hey Jude, why do you eat snails ?

Jude a friend of mine has a habit of eating snails,

Her search for food in my garden never fails.

"Why do you eat snails ?"I asked Jude.

"It's cos I don't like eating fast food !

Eating snails makes me feel better,

I think there is still such a thing as the slow food movement?

I've sacked fast food - those kebabs I used to scoff at drunk o'clock in the morning, yeugh!

I've taken to baking, Christmas cakes, sausage rolls, and I'm going to have a go at making baguettes - I love those french ones. GARLIC BREAD!😄

are snails really meat pies
in disguise
there is a similarity you know
meaty insides
with crusty tops
and snails can grow
and although rather slow
some are big enough for sharing.

I love the profound last line of your poem.
