Mashed Potatoes

The one part of the meal that everyone enjoys.

It is versatile and complete.

By itself it may seem bland

but truly it is the backbone that deserves respect.

Creamy or garlicky or flavoured with paprika

Potatoes make the evening complete.

Leftover mashed potatoes never happens

in this household.

So calling yourself mashed potatoes

means you are loved.

Not everyone may appreciate you

but I certainly do.

(I normally don’t add the why behind the poem because I like to have it speak for itself. In this case, Kelsie Dolin, I want you to know how much I like all of you and I hope you go far on American Idol.)
