Soup and scouse
Permeate a house
Odors causing wet teeth.
The ingredients in these mixtures are not all sweet.
Some are quite bitter, even sour, on their own.
They do however improve  the mix to no end.
I've had added to scouse through several days
and what started as cabbage soup last Tuesday,
Well let's just say it tasted better Sunday afternoon.
Some meals, like say Fish'nChips have to be eaten then.
Others can be edited, several times in preparation
Totally changing original intent and sometimes thrown out.
Other recipes fall off the nib as fast as the pen flows
Needing only an okazyunal spicing or spell check.
