You Gotta Have Soup

    Doesn’t matter where you stay
    where you hang or where you live
    you have to eat you know
    perhaps something through a sieve.

    Like a brothy, frothy warm
    beefy brew
    with veggies, meat or some chicken
    it’s too loose to be stew.

    It could actually be thick
    like chowder with clams
    or a watery consistency
    made with beans and with hams.

    I prefer it when temps
    are bitter and cold
    but this edible gem
    you can’t put on hold.

    They made it for you
    when you were just a tot
    your Mom and your Grand
    you loved it a lot.

    It was ethnic with memories
    passed down with love
    from family long past
    it fit like a glove.

    You know what of I speak
    so don’t spring a leak
    you know you’ll lift the pot lid
    just to take a peek.

    It’s soup silly one
    and it warms to the heart
    whether made from scratch
    or tossed into your cart.
