Rtfm 21 Edible Poetry - Poem by Stewart McKenzie

The French eat their words
Say it in French with orotund vowels
And backthroat rolling 'r's
Les Francais mangent leur mots
Such sensuous mastication of meaning!
Such gourmet tasting of the texture of sound!

    A delicious tidbit...here's hoping you are not often forced to eat your own words. Well done!
