I'm cooking a pot of black beans and just felt inspired to write this.

altBlack Beans

by Susan H Fouts

Black beans soaking in a pot

Learning to accept our lot

With food prices on the rise

Gas even higher to the skies.


Black beans simmering on the stove

With bay leaf and oregano

Intoxicating aroma reaches my nose

And slithers down to my toes.


A lovely dinner they will make

If my belly does not ache.

Rice will be a nice surprise

And appealing to my eyes.


They both together will complete

A tasty dinner we can eat.
