The wonder, the plunder, the marvel of words
that snap our attention, cause anger and fear,
joy and elation, laughter and tears
sprinkle fairy dust upon the ordinary.
There it was, “apples, sauced.”
Oh, how delightful that sounds,
a delectable dish, undoubtedly served
with swagger and swish.
Not plain old apple sauce,
which children love
and hospitals too
but you won’t find it taught at Cordon Blue.
