Magic Beans

Ah, my mother’s 4-bean salad! I could write an ode. Why, I think I will!

Ode To Mom’s Bean Salad


+++
All my life, dear Mother! You’ve made
This tasty melange in its tangy marinade.
A bowl of beans–four types.
(I hear of a recipe of three–yikes!)
The vinegar, it zings! The oil–it clings!
(The bits of onion sting, but in the most delicious way.)
I cannot–I won’t–ever hold back praise
Of this salad made sans mayonnaise.

Thanks, Mom!
