Life is like bacon.

You can’t just hate it without even trying it

It’s succulent, sizzling, and savory

It’s hard to do it right

But when you do, it’s perfect

And you take small bites out of it

Occasionally getting a burnt bit here and there

But all around, it’s great

Of course, like all great things, it’ll end

I assure you, however, that when it does

You’ll be satisfied and won’t mind moving on
