Vegetable Sonata

Folder: 
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!

Funny

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~
