Preparing The Vegetables


He found her in the kitchen talking quietly to the broccoli,
leaving the carrots whispering to one another. 

In the far corner he noticed some newly arrived sprouts,
huddled together, nervously watching on. 

He ambled over and started chatting,
trying to put them at their ease. 

Unfortunately they’d just witnessed the cauli
being dropped into a pan of boiling water 

They’d been brought in from the garden that morning
and had never witnessed the horrors of a kitchen before. 

His heart went out to the poor things,
they had no idea what lay in store for them.
