A thought by Inkdrop (BK) for the Inkwell


Am I looking at the real thing here?

Really tasty treats, chemically constructed,

Taken by the artisan and transformed.

It looks like the real thing – and tastes like it, but

Fooled you would be – for there’s no real fruit in that cake

In fact, it’s fruits are mostly almond paste – marzipan

Combined with apple flavouring….

If you looked beyond the con – you would eat it all the same

As it sits in the centre of the dinner table

Looks, of course – are deceptive….

    Excellent poetry. It’s a bit sad that some processed foods use phrases like “natural flavors” and “made with real x” as a selling point these days.

      Cheers for reading, Booktrekker…back from the Christmas festivities (albeit there’s three days to go here in blighty) and began another twelve months (hopefully) of readable scribbles. Feel free to take a ponder – theres lots to take a look at.
