For today’s assignment I found myself in a block. Can’t get the mood to write an elegy as much as I try. After two failed attempts, I managed something about flavors and using a bit of enumeratio. I hope it will make you smile 🙂
An “elegy” to my tomato soup
You know that moment when you want
To cook something good,
That you taste buds will like?
Easy said and done, at least for me
As I’m not a good cook as you’ll see.
Sweet, savory, salty or sour
What shall choose at this hour?
Will go for something in between
Is all that I can think.
Tomatoes, basil, garlic and water
Simple and tasty for the matter.
How difficult to cook it can it be?
It’s not, f you do it perfectly.
But I’m not perfect and n the process
Sprinkled too much salt as couldn’t taste it.
So my magnificent soup, that now it’s ready
Cannot be eaten as too salty.
I want to cry, but there’s no point
It’s better if I lit a joint
And smoke it in my soup’s honor
Which ended up as a bin donor.
