Poet and Chef
The poet and the chef are creatively allied.
The words and foods they use are artfully applied.
Their creations are expressed with subtlety or flourish
To satisfy the needs of the senses that they nourish.
So come along with me to a smorgasbord of verse.
Some poems may be lengthy but others will be terse.
And if some rhymes are sour, I hope that most are sweet.
I'll try to please your tastes, and so, bon appetit!
I'm sure there are herbs that lend themselves
To the making of non-cliched puns in rhyme.
I know I'd find one if I searched my shelves
But I'd prefer not to waste my thyme.
