Talking Turkey


The ubiquitous theme park snack—
the turkey leg
Folks go hog-wild for them.

What’s their draw?
The taste? The smell?
The care-free attitude?

It’s like an ice-cream cone,
but it’s meat. Dark meat.
It goes good with beer.

Feel caveman-like!
Gnaw! Pull pieces off!
Salty! Smoky! Meaty!

Street-food phenomenon.
Comfort food.  Flavor.
It’s Americana.
