The Perfect Potato

Of all things earthly precious
we give gratitude to mud
a mine of golden vegetables
especially the spud

Ten thousand years developing
seeming old yet somewhat new
forgetting that we owe it all
to the Inca’s of Peru

A most nutritious parcel
giving value to cuisines
chip or crisp to roast or mash
fetching finest soup terrines
