Sweet and Salty

There once was a king who would eat
Exclusively things that were sweet.
	His chefs were at fault
	If he tasted salt
So their spicings were very discreet.

On the other hand, there was his queen,
Who favored a sav’ry cuisine.
	She liked her food salty
	Or dishes were faulty;
The cooks were betwixt and between!

On the day of their princely son’s birth,
She announced, “He’s the salt of the earth!”
	But the monarchs did meet
	And agreed he was sweet
So the kingdom rejoiced in their mirth.

Just a joy for a simple boy who's glad for every word. Who feed's on rhyme that's so sublime, the best he's ever heard. Peace. :)

by the way, I love ice cream too, Ilene, but the exotic flavors or unusual ones like peanut butter chocolate. Have you tasted Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby. YUMMY. Also I really enjoy licorice flavor and flavors like rum raisin or amaretto.
