The Sauerkraut Study - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
Hear ye, hear ye what I'm about
to tell you about Sauerkraut.
The latest study has revealed
that Cabbage grown out in the field
is later, through long fermentation
turned into what the German nation
has long considered its proud flag.
Lest you all think that I would brag
it's this fine Kraut that keeps your breasts
in splendid shape, like honoured guests.
Malignancies that venture in
are turned away with a sly grin,
the juices of that special stuff
can stand their ground and huff and puff.
They do protect your DNA
and chase the cancer cells away.
is what's observed, what people see
it's not firm proof as black and white
but chances are they might be right.
Though I myself have not been blessed
with lovely nipples or a breast
I eat my Kraut two days a week
and add a stalk of pungent leek
some seeds of caraway on top
then go and tend my cabbage crop.
As God had mentioned years ago
an illness can be such a blow
but if you listen, he will teach
about the remedy for each.
No plant is growing for no reason
that's why we have a growing season,
eat foods that stop you getting ill
and do not trust the doctor's pill
make Sauerkraut one of your staples,
they even eat the stuff in Naples.
This poem is dedicated to Sherrie,
whose corpus callosum is well-
functioning in both directions.
