Oil and Vinegar



I sat down for my hunger to sate

Eyeing the freshly made salad plate

Though plenty to eat, I wanted to savor

Something replete with a little more flavor


I could dress this gardened menagerie

Drizzle flavor onto greened imagery

But Roquefort and ranch eliminate

The other flavors on the plate


I needed something light and fine

Like vinegar made from red wine

And an extra virgin olive oil

To flavor blessings from the soil


Just adding the oil won’t do the trick

Alone it just makes everything slick

The vinegar is needed to coincide

And bring out a more flavorful side


And as well as they worked as a pair

Flavoring this simple vegetable fare

Being kept separate is the fix

For these two do not easily mix


When added in the right measure

They gift the mouth with such pleasure

Yet when it is all said and done

The two will never be as one

  1. What a flavoured poetry. You give meaning and life to simple day to day stuffs. And that’s the beauty. πŸ‘Œ

    could argue this is an analogy about the benefits of diversification – each one bringing their own strengths to the table, without compromise, and the result is something better than individually…
