Poem: Artificial Flavor NaPoWriMo #11 Easter Cookies

IMG_3559

Hey, let’s celebrate

Pass the potassium … sorbate

Beyond butter and sugar too

Fill up on 5 yellow, and lake 1 blue

Everything’s celebrated with

Soy oil that’s hydrogenated

Wax of caranuba

Oil of cottonseed

Thiamine

Lecithin

And Dextin indeed!

Cocoa processed with alkali

Corn syrup

Cornstarch

My oh my!

Wait, what’s the connection

To the resurrection

Enriched flour

Spring flower

Red 3, Red 40, Yellow 5 and 6

New lambs and ducklings

And little baby chicks

Fall forward

Spring back

How do cookies

Fill the lack?

The final touch

plastic

Wow

Now they look fantastic

Ready to savor

Artificial flavor
