Mango Tango

Salford 2nd June

#CYW #Mangotango

Mix it up a little, make your taste buds come

Alive with each nibble, as you mix up

Nourishing mango with fish meats or vegetables

Giving the dish a most unique flavour

Over the heat and tang of the spices

Burn

Burn

the triangle a simple one

heat air and fuel

started by a little spark

amongst the smallest of shavings

 

Little flame eating

everything around it

kept at bay

by logs and bricks

 

Starting off slowly

the flames begin to grow

dining on everything near it

apart from the Billy can above

 

bread on a green stick

changes with the dancing flames

from dough to delight in seconds

with help from the makeshift grill

 

smells of the barbecue

rise in the air

as backwoods sausages

add fuel to the flames

 

light and warmth

dancing slowly in the moonlight

till all that are left

are the glowing impish coals

 

staff of life

the end of life

for the fire that maintained life

Round the campfire circle

Transformation II

Transformation

in the kitchen

magic is performed

as

yellow butter

white sugar

brown flour

some eggs

and mixed fruit

join together in harmony

with the aid of nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed space

 

popped in the oven

and left to combine

they jump about in the warm

and become solid or baked

forming a most wonderful substance

a cake.

Desert

Destination – Sand – for tough animals.

Even the hardiest elephant or

Ship of the desert

Expects a bit of

Relief from

Torrential heat – bring on the rain!
