You gotta be careful what you put up.
It’s like Fish ‘N’ Chips.
One bad batch and people remember.
That bad taste in the mouth.
You gotta serve it up fresh, hot, well salted,
people like salt and it has to have crunch
It has to hit those taste buds.
Make the mouth water.
Run with melody.
A good poem is like a bag of fish ‘n’ chips.
Not too fussy.
Just the basics, a little poetry with herbs and spices
and that secret ingredient people keep talking about.
Something you can savour.
Ponder over for a while.
You develop trust,
Yeh, that little guy behind the counter, he knows how to do it.
And you keep coming back.
That’s how you want it to be.
A good poem is like Fish ‘N’ Chips.
