Okay it’s raw,
but sometimes it’s not.
You can always order
miso soup that is hot.

There’s so much to choose from
the variety extreme.
You can get overwhelmed.
All in one sitting? That’s a dream.

They serve it on trays
or oft times in a boat.
If you can operate chopsticks
I can’t so don’t gloat!

You can dip it in hot sauce,
but I’m a wimp I admit.
It gives me such heartburn
I go into a fit.

So I go for the soy sauce
dip away I do so.
Left to my devices
I would go and go and go.

Who knew I’d get off on this stuff
tuna, rice and the squid.
The cats out of the bag now.
You can’t put on the lid.

Where I live its Kyushu,
Origami or Ambrosia.
But even from the grocery
It’s popular that shows ya.

So if you take me to dine
it’s Sake instead of wine.
If you haven’t tried sushi
it’s time you toed that line!
