The Rev. Dana Prom Smith, S.T.D., Ph.D. (3/3/08)

Some are slim, some full-figured, always smooth

To the touch, silken, lustrously rich,

A vegetable with charm to bewitch

Carnivores with a meatless meal to soothe

Their savage breasts. The word eggplant so uncouth

Sadly isn’t elegant enough a niche

For a deeply purpled aubergine which

Is beautiful to behold and a sleuth

Of tastes and flavors it subtly receives

From herbs and cheeses fashioning entrees

Worthy of fine chinas, savory cuisines,

Soaring culinary recitatives,

Silver and crystal and settings to please

Those given to fine linen damascenes.
