Prompt ~UNSEASONABLY SALTY

UNSEASONABLY SALTY

by John Yeo

If salt were a part of the recent trend,
Would the salty flavour alter our taste?
Would we finish our food to the bitter end?
~
If salt were consumed with a dietary end,
Would the real food flavour ever be traced?
If salt became a part of the recent trend.

~

Without a dash of salt to add to the blend
Food seems indigestible, yet hard to waste.
Would we finish our food to the bitter end?

~

If we faced the bitter truth would it tend,
To touch our consciences, sadly debased?
If salt were a part of the recent trend.  

~

Would scientific research be hard to defend

With salty language, sadly misplaced?

Would we finish our food to the bitter end?

~

Careless views would be hard to defend
Unseasonably salty and badly displaced.
If salt were a part of the recent trend,
Would we finish our food to the bitter end?
