My Pancakes Sang the Blues

Poem based on my culinary skill experimentation making breakfast today (8-31-2017) morning

Breakfast time,  to the kitchen,  pancakes in the menu today,
Healthy choice, blueberry pancakes, to start the day.

Searched the fridge, no fresh berries, what to do,
Frozen berries, used for smoothies,  to the rescue.

Microwaved for a quick defrost,  what a soggy mess,
Limp blueberries floating on purple juice to my distress.

Start the batter,  fire up the stove, pancakes I will make,
Frozen or not,  blueberry pancakes,  whatever it takes.

Batches of pancakes,  all nice round,  plump and soft
Bottom of the bowl, looking melancholy, was a deep purple broth.

Made little blue batter, why let good thing go to waste,
Out came a few blue pancakes,  looking their best.

Proud of my culinary skill,  top of the pile blue pancakes went;
One look at them,  my better half screamed and went into a rant.

Don’t judge by the color, I reasoned,  taste and give them their due;
Alas! lost cause, cast aside, my lovely pancakes sang the blues.


The blue pancakes were very tasty though

Want and Need

Want the whole world but do we really need the mess
What to do with more if we can be happy with less
Want to be at peace or do we need to be rich
Want to be learned but do we need to preach
Want may be less but do we need more
Want to be social but do we need to be a bore
We want more to satisfy our needs, or
Want to ensure to keep up with the Joneses
World may look down on those whose wants are less
While the majority work hard to meet their basic needs
Why is this raging conflict between want and need
When peace in the world is all we want indeed
