Hazard

She pulverized cooked turnips
and folded them in
with the mashed potatoes,
as if we wouldn’t notice
the flavor of Satan
settling on our tongues,
sulphur along with the mild
buttery goodness
of the unassuming spud.

I don’t recall
who won
the test of wills,
I just remember
us surviving
what God
provided.

One thought on “Hazard

  1. Funny! I really like it. I’ve only eaten turnips once or twice in my life, but I guess they can’t compare to mashed potatoes!

    The video was a nice bonus. Did you post it there, or was it really an ad for something?
