“Sausage” with Maple-Yogurt Sauce

“Monster”

Look!
Can you see?
Lurking in shadows…
There,
behind those stones.

I heard…
the women whisper—
he has worms instead of bones.
And, every night, he comes out—
stealing children from their homes.

Look!
Can you find him?
Him with his cruel face…
Oh! What it must be—
to be born in that fiery place!

Still, I wonder…
what could he be thinking.
What plea does he cry
when his heart begins its sinking?

Listen!
Can you hear it—
that Devil’s cry?
God! Please save us…
we do not wish to die.

Listen! Children!
Listen to his words.
Listen closely…
let your souls fly
on wings of birds!

Oh Father!
We hear you,
we heed your command—
for fear of the wrath
from your Divine Hand!

Pain! Pain!
Pain, my only friend.
How do you find me—
at every turn and bend?

Pain?
What pain could he be feeling?
Oh Monster, so much stronger—
what stops you from healing?

Look! Look!
Look how they stare!
Examining me for Evil—
every pore and hair!

Yes, I am Evil,
Evil, scarred and torn.
But, at least, unlike some—
my Evil spares my bones!

Evil? We knew it!
Evil! You cannot hide it!
It shows in your scars
and every deformed bit!

Devil! Devil!
“Devil,” they call me.
Oh cursed fate,
won’t I ever be free—
from my born state?

Listen!
Listen My children!
And tell Me!
Tell Me!
What do you hear?

The Devil calls us.
He will steal us,
we fear.

Oh, My children,
why can you not hear?
Don’t the cries of wounded heart—
ring in your ear?

No, My Lord—
they will not hear—
for they cannot see—
the tissue-paper bandages
that will not set me free.

Veggie Sausage with Slightly Sweet Dressing makes 1 serving

  • 2-3 (vegan) sausage patties (mine were Morningstar but I think I heard Boca came out with some recently)
  • 1/2 a 6oz container Greek yogurt (if you choose to use regular yogurt, add a squeeze of lemon juice to increase the sour punch)
  • Garlic powder (I didn’t measure but about 1/4-1/2 tsp. should be good)
  • 2-3 tsp. maple syrup of choice (mine was “diet” but I’m sure this would taste even better with real maple syrup)
  • Onion powder, paprika, cumin, all optional

→Cook the sausage patties according to package directions. Mix all the other ingredients (yogurt, syrup, spices). If the yogurt sauce is too thick, add some milk or water till it reaches a good consistency. Top patties with sauce. Serve with a side of veggies such as my Roasty Toasty Broccoli, which also happens to taste delicious with this sauce).
As always, enjoy.

A little tip on using yogurt in sauces: To avoid clumps, stir the yogurt before adding any other ingredients. If you add a liquid (i.e. milk/syrup) to the yogurt without stirring it, the yogurt will clump and that’s just no fun.

    I’m grateful for this information on pain. Thanks you so much. Pain is the scourge of all of us. Enduring pain when an another choice is available is poor.
