Holiday Haute Cuisine

Holiday heart attacks epidemic

Much as anybody
This cardiac surgeon
Has seen how risk-factor
Gunk can muck up your works.

I remember after Jack (of Jack
& Marion’s Deli in Brookline)
Had left Beth Israel Hospital on
My service; another main coronary event

I attended his autopsy
To get good look at how corned
Beef + chocolate eclairs might lay one
Low over a lifetime of food indulgences.

But when Julia Child crashed through the
French double doors into our C.C.U.
Carrying a tray of goodies to butter up
the House officers caring for her hubby

Truth be told, I couldn’t resist!
