The Lament of a Veggie Sandwich

I’m the lonely veggie sandwich on the catering tray

No one wants to eat me and I’ll just get thrown away


Despite my zesty pesto and portobello meat

Ham and Swiss that old standby on rye is hard to beat


Grilled on open charcoal my zucchini hits that spot

Yet pastrami gets the attention with mustard that is hot


The tuna and the turkey breast are popular indeed

Even though I’m served on bread topped with pumpkin seed


Roast beef with smoked cheddar is a hearty midday meal

Yet somehow roasted peppers carry no appeal


Even the egg salad fills a culinary niche

Like curry chicken salad wraps, I might as well just be a quiche


Regardless of my first-rate healthy lifestyle cachet

I’m the lonely veggie sandwich who will be thrown away

Where Am I?
