Beetroot

I

Born in the ground

enjoying itself in the soil before being

elevated to new heights and

taken to the kitchen where it will

rest in vinegar and spices till it comes

out of the pickling jar and set

out on the plate as

the perfect side to the Lancashire hotpot

II

Pickling vinegar turns

Unusual colour –

Residing out of the root vegetable

Perfect stew – now peppered with coloured spots

Languishing lazily in the gravy that

Everyone enjoys
