Uniquely Delicious are We
A poem by Sister Laila
peppers potatoes tomatoes greens carrots lentils beans corn and peas
In a big pot
Melting melting away?
The beauty disappears as it blends
Individual uniqueness can't be found
Turn down the heat!
Then again just turn the heat off!
Take peppers of all kind hot and sweet
Potatoes sweet red white purple and gold
Tomatoes steak and cherry
Collards spinach kale arugula and swish chard
Baby carrots for crunch lentils
Black navy pito and gaboso beans
Try colored corn and baby june pes
Now don't put them in a pot and definitely no heat!
Make them clean cool and crisp!
Put them in a big glass bowl...
Let the beauty and uniqueness be seen from every angle!
Then sprinkled some constitutional American spice!
Oh....What a great life!
