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.
