Sonnets from Suburbia: Chicken Caesar
Our LA Life Poetess Lady Penelope, AKA actress/author Penny Peyser, continues this week to explain modern life through Shakespearean verse. In this week’s episode her sonnet objects to the name “Chicken Caesar” and she explains why in the only way Lady Penelope can. And don’t forget to order a copy of Penny Peyser’s (Lady Penelope) brilliant newly released book, “Sonnets from Suburbia: More Candles Than Cake”.
A Chicken Caesar’s not a name that’s earned
By any stretch of reason for a man
Who brutally was murdered when he turned
His back on Brutus and his evil plan.
Betrayal’s not a cause to name a salad
Especially one accompanied with fowl
Denoting cowardice. Let’s choose a ballad
In minor key to sing with mournful howl.
For shame this man’s namesake’s part of a diet
That’s ordered when we’re longing to grow slim.
The Ides of March did cause a hateful riot.
I came to bury Caesar, not to eat him.
O’ try to honor him and cry, “All Hail!”
And if his mem’ries dear please hold the kale.
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
