Salt-of-my-earth, you give life flavor,
you cure, you help me stay clean.  You
who buoyed me when I would have
drowned. Got this gritty feel I love.
Sift of pepper to make me feel alive.

Read the lips you’ve made more tender.
Bland and bitter are off the table,
once and for all.

Additional facts: hook on sight.
Side-effects tend to include flushing,
which can lead to heavy breathing.
Mouth cottons, and there’s a tingle
you want to go on. Rapid heartbeat
and dizziness normal -- take usual
emergency measure.

Hot or baby-bottle-temp, every cell
in me hungers and thirsts for you,
and only you.

You are in my blood.

Problem is, over the years, too much gunk is now in my bloodstream and too much salt in my diet.

You know what they say, cut down on sodium and up your potassium. Hey salt is salt and there's nothing like a good old banana breakfast in bed. Patrick

Salt: too little or too much, not good. In right amounts (as in this delicious write), PERFECTLY SEASONED goodness. :) Well done, (((Pea))).

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Pee, With just enough salt, you don't need
to add sugar, for you got your point across
without it.
Reviewed by John Flanagan
This tribute is subtly provocative,
Pea, thought through elegantly..
and with impact.

Wonderful double entendre. Pardon the reference, but salt is like a woman–you can't live without her and you can't live with her (too much). Very creative and thought provoking.
