Good Cookin

by Kate Demeree

Inspector instigator stood stirring up the stew
Wondering as he did what next he should do
He waited to see if a smile would bubble to the top
Didn’t pause before he acted, never thought to stop
Until he lit a brilliant flame beneath that copper pot
Which unbeknownst to him was already hot, hot, hot


Author's Note: Was blessed with several smiles from friends today, and thought I might give one in return, that and a *piffit* :oP

Brought a smile to this kook's face... (um, I mean cook! [;0)!

As usual, I can see two, three, four, or more subtexts in the simplist of your pieces, Kate.

they only bubble to the top cause they know you're there, like frogs egging toward's the ponds surface to be metamorphosized by princess.
