Nepalese street meat

Please sir

can I have a piece of that chicken

I asked fingerlicking

pointing at the meat

in the window seat

he smiled sly

slapped away the fly

one of ten thousand

I can't say I felt aroused and

I admit I was in doubt

but I had allowed

myself one meat dish

not even fish

had I been eating

as a vegetarian I had been greeting

all restaurant owners and waiters

and I know I'll be sorry later

but only the sizzling of meat in butter

is what makes my mouth water

tonight I'll be alright

but I bet

tomorrow will be a day of regret...
