Chicken Soup (Panacea)

Acrostic, Food, Health

Perhaps you say, it could have magical properties

as the recipe has been passed down the generations for years

notably, it reaches parts your chemists cold cures dont

and it’s tasty to the person that’s eating it

changes to little things like seasonings, are expected through time but

everybody knows the core of chicken, onion and carrot

and mum and dad know – they’ll have empty bowls and seconds asked for

Musical Fixings

A piece for the prompt

Transmogrify

Left over bits from the scrapyard,

Bits from a box full of fixings.

Nuts and bolts mingle with springs and old allen keys,

brought together on a square by the craftsman –

bringing a magical musical fellow to life.

No need to go nuts for your previous existence

play us a tune – jazzy little man
