Notice the simple kitchen whisk,
It has flexible coils and hand-held top.
No sharp blades put hands at risk,
No buttons tell you to start or stop.
The whisk I guess may seem outdated,
It has no batteries or plug-in motor.
You may think it unsophisticated,
Without electric power to drive the rotor.
But the whisk requires no costly fixing,
No power shutoffs are caused by weather.
And when the recipe calls for mixing,
It feels good to do the work together.
The whisk won't break and is never rusted
When eggs are whipped or pudding beaten.
It's a kitchen tool that can be trusted,
And the food tastes better when it's eaten.
