The Garlic

This is my first experiment with repetition in a rhyme. I figured if any food bears repeating, it's garlic!

The Garlic

Glamorous, glorious garlic!
Your cloves are delightful to peel.
You're divine in a roast, or sprinkled on toast;
You add flavor to most any meal.

Gallant and generous garlic!
You're medicine for all that ails;
You keep blood sugar low, cure a gangrenous toe -
You're the remedy that never fails.

Gutsy and grandiose garlic!
You scare all the vampires away.
There is nothing I fear, for no soul will come near,
Since I dine on you three times a day.

The Plum: Now Appearing....

My newest morsel of verse (complete with illustration!) is hanging out over at Project OpenBook. I hope you'll take a look!
