The Real Scoop On Making Poetry Soup

This poem aims to give the scoop
on how we conjure up poetry soup.
For many it is clear to see
that they prefer a recipe.
Limerick, lanterne or haiku
perhaps a one lined monoku stew,
Bouillabaisse ballad, clerihew consommé 
so many forms for the soup of the day.

     and for others
         sprinkle of saffron, pinch of sage
           Organic bone broth, hearts of celery
                 hormone free chicken breast, carrot chunks
           inspirational ingredients
      swirl and simmer together, creating
palate pleasing poem du jour.
