If I speak to the ingredients of my meal,
Will they, in fact, speak back to me?
Will the parsley and potatoes
Take a moment to proclaim their innocence?
Will the salt and pepper try to say
That they were framed?
If they do, I'm prepared
To meet them with a counter-argument.
Actions, they say, speak louder than words;
I'll simply eat the evidence.
