Prompt logo - Flashback Track Friday

This is my response to this week’s Flashback Track Friday prompt, where we were given the duet 7 Seconds by Neneh Cherry and Youssuf N’Dour and asked to:

Tell us a story about an event that spans just seven seconds.

I also wrote on Fandango’s One Word Challenge on Thursday (here). I always try to write a humerous limerick, and the rhyme that day was about a hapless chef who makes a new dish by combining crab and ice cream. Let’s just say his diners were left inflatulated!

That “hapless chef” idea tickles me, so I came up with a sequel. It also fits the 7 Seconds prompt, but I leave it as an exercise for the reader, to determine exactly how.

This poor chef was an unlucky feller,
Crab-flavoured ice cream less than stellar,
He replaced this new dish,
With a main course of fish,
And the diners all caught salmonella.
