Vegetable Sonata

Vintage Words


Potato endeavors end up peeled or

diced or mashed. Each Idaho spud is full

of starchy goo. Probably was introduced

by First Nations when Columbus

hit the scene.
Now, we insult a perfectly respect worthy

vegetable that grows under the earth 
hiding from a world so cruel. Coupled

with a sofa, setee, or a lounge, we name

the occupant a potato, insulting  a

perctly respectable vegetable.

I love potatoes!  I also

I love potatoes!  I also abhor the fact that on 40% of the 1st world nations food is sold and 60% thrown out or passed up! 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Younger generations like to call low tech/grade film recording devices like old phones potatoes also.  Like one would say, too bad you filmed this with a potato.  Very nice.

As A Diabetic

potatoes are on the no-no list, but chips baked in oil in a can with a mustached old dude have my name on 'em. One of my few indulgences. The potato lobby in Idaho would like this poem too m'thinks  ~a~
