Salt is good…
So is cream,
Slow cook a recipe instead.
Use some butter,
Vegetable spreads are good for breads.
Olive Oil makes good dressings…
And Lemon juice makes a tang…
Try new things, if not bad
Don’t let it go to your head!
For I tinker, and I experiment
But it’s only to find a fine art…
Art is not what’s new and bold
But what’s been the best from the start.
There are things we have eaten
Since we were little girls and lads
Which our grandparents and theirs have eaten
So put in its place a fad.
Yes, a candy of a different sort
Will taste good at a One Night Stand.
But every night to eat that thing
A chocolate bar looks pretty grand.
For food is good,
And so is to make
A new thing never been done…
But consider if it were really good
It would already be tried by someone!
Life is not what’s new and creative
But finding the truth for you.
For what is truth can be creative
But it’s found because it’s called truth!
We can paint a dot and polka-dot
Those look good on a fashionable dress…
But on a canvas, heavens bless
I could have done that with a press.
No… not to say a white painted board
Cannot be worth a lot.
It’s just… someone who’s worked as hard as us
To earn from our living, we ought.
