The Secret!

Grandma Burcke did whisper to her seven daughters

a mighty secret known only to some quaint farmer folk,

not to be repeated to none other but their own true kin.

‘t Was a wizardry of wondiferous proportions,

a sacred, saucy spell of perma-transmution of…

how to turn a lowly, common slice of meat and grease

into a crispery feat of great delight to taste and sight,

fit only to be served to those one truly, truly loved:

that of their daily bacon!
