The Jesus of Morteau

Is the world’s fattest. A bulging packet of meat.
Hung for weeks - cured
or smoked - in the rafters
during winter. Tied up
with string, wound with wood,
labeled in metal.
Best at Christmas,
with a hamper, and a bottle
of yellow wine. Some Klaus
chocolates: pralines
or a tablette filled
with liqueur.
