In the Soup



A good cook knows

It’s a delicate balance

Not too much salt

This spice not that one

Taste as you go

Try it and see what will happen

Consider carefully

As the broth bubbles

Blending the flavors

In mysterious ways


The complex chemistry

Of our bodies

Like soup

Responds in ways

Not always predicted.

Any change has an impact

Medications swim

In our bloodstreams

A riot of flavor

Reducing some risks

While creating others.


Add the spices slowly

Let them simmer.

Be wise.
