THE HUMUS WENT TOO LONG!
Tony came prepared
With a shopping bag that day…
Filled with stuff from TRADER JOE’S,
Which to us he gave away.
Some artichoke spread I said I’d try
And brought some humus, too…
Some high-end whole wheat crackers
That we both went quickly through.
The plainer humus I devoured,
It took barely a week…
The artichoke I tried to like
But didn’t, so-to-speak.
The crackers, as I said, went fast
Between my wife and I…
And then we moved on to other things,
Our enthusiasm died.
So one humus–and the artichoke–
Remained for a month or two…
The humus taste is not so fun
And I think its time is through!
