An Ode to a Vegemite Sandwich

I love a Vegemite sandwich!
It’s always set to please
when spread on multigrain bread
and a nice big slab of cheese.

The red and yellow label
Beckons from the pantry shelf.
It stands out from all other things
And whispers “Come, help yourself!”

Twisting off the yellow lid
I gaze into the deep black sea;
A subtle whiff of dark delight
Evokes shivers of ecstasy.

Smoothly spread on buttered bread
Not too thick and not too thin
Covering our slice to the outer edge
This sanga’s already a win.

Slap on some cheese and close it up.
Anticipating more than I can bear
I carry it off to my favoured spot
And settle to enjoy my fare.

Salty tang of great delight!
Smooth and creamy texture!
The sanga’s swallowed all too soon
Let’s get more of this tasty mixture.
