Butter

#socs #food #butter

I

Born out of the milkchurn,

unsalted and golden

taking a morning trip onto

toast, crumpets and scones

even the odd fish or two

remarkable

II

Brought together with flour and sugar

up in the kitchen

there’s something sweet cooking,

the mix is in the oven, but

everyone knows the best part of the prep – licking the

round mixing spoon and the bowl

III

Building blocks for Bakers

using fat for a meat pie might be ok – but

the sweet stuff needs something for

the fillings to accompany it – providing an

envelope for the fruit to go in ,

roundly eaten off with custard or cream
