Han Min Ohn
Acid and alkali
A little acidity not many tongues will detest
Sometimes a sour taste, for a tongue, is best
Too low of it and the tongue will be dissolved
Not a single tongue will dare to get involved.
A little alkalinity many tongues sometimes prefer
What it creates, is a taste we call bitter
Too high of it and the tongue will be corroded
Not a single tongue will dare to get eroded.
