Poem: Artificial Flavor NaPoWriMo #11 Easter Cookies


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



And Dextin indeed!

Cocoa processed with alkali

Corn syrup


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



Now they look fantastic

Ready to savor

Artificial flavor
