Split Pea Soup and a Misguided English Major
If you stick a bunch of fanciful ideas
inside a crock pot,
you get a mind full of mush.
Who slices all those dried peas in half anyways?
Bay leaves are to George Bernard Shaw
As two ham hocks are to postmodernism.
What I would really like is lip-lickin’ spoonful after spoonful
of YUM THAT’S SUCH GODDAMN DELICIOUS SOUP
but working on the alphabet can be just as tasty as
one almond plus a bucket full of sand.
