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.)
