The Human Recipe


Do you know what I don’t understand?

(Aside from French, German, Italian,

Mandarin Chinese etc.) (Oh, and quantum physics,

calculus, astronomy and electricity…and plumbing?)

It’s people!! Nope, I don’t get people.

If, according to applied biology, we are all made up

of the same ingredients, (though the measurements

may fluctuate) then how do the results of the recipe

vary so greatly?


How can some be sweet,

and some, be sour?

How can some be happy,

and some, be dour?

Some be upbeat,

and some be down?

Some always smiling,

and some always, a frown?

Okay, so maybe it’s the cook,

or maybe it’s the oven.

Then maybe, after all,

it’s just, the amount of lovin’!
