Worry Wart

Nutritional stress oh my hollow heart I have these deep feelings straight to the core I now feel like I am falling apart I walk along the same path as before. I have these deep feelings straight to the core My starched mind becomes clouded and wispy I walk along the same path as before If only I could stay gold and crispy. My starched mind becomes clouded and wispy Instead of slim I will be crinkle cut If only I could stay gold and crispy At last, deep fried and I’m out of this rut. Date: 08/02/2021 Picture number 3 Pantoum poetry Contest Sponsored by: Eve Roper A slight bit of contexts - Potatoes get warts and internal black spots which is an open cavity in the middle of potatoes and it is a defect known as hollow heart. Sometimes the cavity is ringed with a brown discoloration, and other times it is just a gap surrounded by normal potato flesh or, it may be just a dark spot in the centre of the interior.
