The world’s stew


Chop the many layers of the onion of spite.

A generous squeeze of selfish garlic pureé

Dice three large carrots of mistrust, blame and guilt.

Also, a parsnip of self-righteous pride.

Cut 1 inch square dices of low quality desire of the flesh

And braise in non-virgin olive oil.

Dissolve an Oxo cube of the stock of greed

And combine with all other ingredients.

Roast slowly for many years, until tasty and falling apart.

Serve up to the whole human family, with potatoes

Grown in the dirt of life.

It will satisfy at first, but will need to be constantly served

For the appearance of life to be maintained.

Best eaten cold…
