Solving Mysteries

Not to question the Good Lord’s judgement,
but why must bacon shrink?
Why would something that feels as good
as a fart invariably stink?
Why do muscles that have done good work
have a tendency to ache?
Why do sweet memories of you
still cause my heart to break?

Maybe bacon shrinks to keep us
from making ourselves pigs.
Maybe the stink reminds us to find
a bathroom, jiggity jig.
Sore muscles will remind us
that we need time to rest.
And this broken heart reminds me
that you were the best.
