In Praise of Mushy Peas

The first draft of this poem was written at the Chelsea Pensioner pub back in June during my vacation in London.

In Praise of Mushy Peas

Green as spring
Birthed in the garden
Plucked by man
Bred for the task
Popped from their womb
Dropped in the boil
Unified as a paste
Enriching a taste
Worthy of Persephone

    This is charming! You’ve almost convinced me this might taste good; but I think I’ll enjoy the literature, and leave the consumption to you.

    Nice! This post definitely reminded me of travel to England and the culinary choices there. Good memories. Thanks!
