I Love Salt

Now don’t get me wrong – I love sweets.
I love all kinds of sugary treats.
I like cake; I like pie,
and for chocolate I die.
I’m hankering now for a malt!
But nothing beats something with salt.

Caramel corn can be nice.
But I prefer salt or some spice.
It would be a mistake
if I did not shake
a while before calling a halt
(into buttery popcorn) my salt!

I shake it all over spaghetti.
I shake it as if it’s confetti!
On french fries and steak
and casseroles I make -
for sure I will have to exalt
my favorite dishes with salt!
