How We Love Our Food by Kiddogarcia(m): 9:39pm On May 14, 2023
Let the maid dress in their finest silk
Tell the chef to put on show her finest skill
Let the fruit picker to bring forth the best of nature
Tell the wine-bearer to provide the finest of wine

Bake the cake,
Let the potatoes be properly mashed
Welcome the grapes
Let the desert be full of colours

Slice the onions, make the pepper tasty
Unleash the vegetables, let the salad bask in it full glory
And if asked, if we are planning a feast
Tell them!! This is just the way we love our food

Good pieces my boss, Your poem captures the essence of indulgence and celebration through food.

Consider adding more sensory details to engage the reader’s senses.
Incorporate poetic devices such as metaphors or similes to create stronger imagery. For instance, you could compare the finest silk worn by the maid to the delicate petals of a flower, or the flavors in the cake to a symphony of tastes dancing on the tongue.

Pay attention to the overall structure and flow of the poem. Ensure that the lines and stanzas have a consistent rhythm and meter. Experiment with varying line lengths and punctuation to create a sense of musicality or pause where appropriate.

However, it’s a masterpiece ✅
