Learning From Foods
There's much to learn from the foods we see
While cooking, or on plates and shelves.
For some have a knack for mimicry
And can teach us things about ourselves.
Have you seen the way spaghetti bends
Round and round around a fork?
It's hard to tell just where it ends.
That's how some upset people talk.
And others listen like boiling bubbles
That jump here and there from surface tension.
As pressure rises from varied troubles,
They cannot focus their attention.
But communication can be successful
If one knows what stews beneath the lid.
So when the heat becomes too stressful
It helps to add more ego to the id.
