“You’re salty and greasy and smoky as sin
But of all grub we love you the best.”
from Bacon by ‘Badger’ Clark
I have added the poem Bacon by Badger Clark to the poetry section of the Library.
Charles “Badger” Clark, Jr., (1883-1957) wrote cowboy poetry through a forty-year career as America’s most successful cowboy poet. His poem “A Cowboy’s Prayer” is probably one of the best known Western poems of that genre; and Clark’s book of poetry, Sun and Saddle Leather (1915) is still in print today.
Also, Heather Lauer over at Bacon Unwrapped has a new book about bacon coming out this May from William Morrow Publishing. A hardcover (yea!) with 244 pages of fun, facts, recipes and resources about the best meat ever.
You can check it out and pre-order a copy like me at:
