It doesn’t matter
How you dress it up

(The market
Has any number of condiments that try)

A week old loaf is still a lump
That's lost its flavor

A slice from which
Isn’t worth
The price

It's amazing what stuff they try to sell you down the market

But so many see only the dressings... don't bother to look closer as they grab. *S*

I like this very much! *S*

Good point.

This applies to many things. Pretty packaging is everywhere.

Except perhaps for rye, which gets better for a day or two if you don't cut it, then coasts for a bit. Rye, wry, just a matter of spelling, eh?

To me, this has a very metaphorical message behind it. It makes me think of good and evil, I don't know why. Wrong is wrong no matter what "condiments" you slap on it. Very nice poem. Cheers   - Ed
