An Ode To Beans On Toast

Simply delicious beans on toast

One of the meals I love the most

It’s my husbands finest cuisine

He can microwave the beans


and butter toast he makes for me.

No cooking fail it’s so easy.

I bet he feels like a top chef

secretly toasting his success.


Topping my beans with grated cheese

and Worcester sauce my taste buds pleased.

Relishing the tomato sauce

on soggy toast I must endorse


this meal that’s cheap and quick to make,

easy if you can’t cook or bake.

My husband’s pleased, really thrilled

He’s made a meal that hasn’t killed.

Icicle branches

pendant over diamond fields,

of frosty mornings.

started to do the Inktober drawing challenge in October and I am still doing it, it’s been slow as have not had much time to draw.

But I am determined to finish it.

This is my first drawing for the first

inspired by the first Inktober creative prompt


My drawing inspired by Frankenstein by Mary Shelley which I recently read.
My thoughts were that it was a very sad story about what it means to be human and I felt that the monster had more humanity than his creator Doctor Frankenstein
