Old Yogurt...... [food; humor; me; cousin request]


I’ve just had old yogurt on oatmeal with strawberry jam.
It’s better than corn flakes and marmalade with old stinky ham.
I say OLD yogurt because it was the last of last batch.....
which, at home, with yogurt-starter and fresh milk we hatch.

No, the old yogurt was good. No mold I found there,
but if I’d found mold I’d have removed it with meticulous care,
and added the moldy yogurt to food scraps.... for our compost,
and used what yogurt was left, with peanut butter, on buttered French toast.

    Well you achieved the cuz brief with an octave of lines although into two stanzas it all divides, and no compost was fed by residual culture and you consumed it all to make a faecal sculpture (you try not rhyming culture with vulture) and as it got old so did this comment, well meaning of course, but ephemeral and spent.
