Sweet or Salty

Sometimes a need for added salt
Can be a good meal's only fault.

I am so glad that I am able
To have salt shaker on my table.

I'd rather chew on dry asphalt
Than finest meat devoid of salt.

And if that meal ends with a treat
It satisfies my yen for sweet.

I got my taste for salt from Papa
And one for sweets from my dear Mama.
