Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Permanently Fixed


Never be satisfied with just the taste of things.
Know each ingredient and what it takes,
To create that taste with it savored anytime wished.
And never be afraid the flavor you make becomes greater,
With a dedicated discipline only you can give it.
Remember...
There is a difference between a craving that stays,
And a fad that fades to be forgotten.
Once that taste one makes is discovered to gratify,
It aint about to go nowhere anytime soon!
It's there as if permanently fixed.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
