I fed it to my wife,

She ate it poorly that night…

I have some now

And, holy cow,

There is no broth in sight!

The water boiled so much that

The “broth” is nothing but fat…

No wonder my bride

Laid it aside

And asked for toast after that.

I think I’ll add water and boil,

Then skim off the fat that recoiled…

Complaints may cease

When I skim the grease,

My reputation as cook has soiled!
