Poetry Soup

Stir it up a bit,

see what seasoning it needs,

add some of this,

and a pinch of that,

bring it to the simmer,

not the boil,

watch (and listen) carefully.

When you guess

that it might be ready…

dish it up,

and serve with crusty bread rolls,

and short straws.

Await the compliments

that will inevitably


to come your way.

Check recipe.

Mark out of 10.


Replace recipe in the safe,

and throw away the key.

In the future,

stick to Limericks.
