Good Clove, Bad Clove

Garlic is a thing quite magic
Though its effects can be quite tragic
It’s really not hard to guess
Why it gets so much bad press
When after some garlicky dinners
People smell of cheap paint thinners.

Chorus

Good clove, bad clove
You’re the one that we love
Use a lot or just a touch
Can there really be too much?

It’s mystical powers clearly will
Address all manner of bodily ills
Against cholesterol, it is a winner
And it makes your blood flow thinner
It helps fight cancer, or so they say,
And even keeps a vampire at bay.

Chorus

It grows, we’re told, where Satan stood
A force for evil or a force for good?
I don’t care, I love the stuff
It’s very hard to get enough.
There’s one thing God should be knowing
If there’s none in Heaven, I ain’t going.

Chorus

Bulbous beauty
milky white silken curves
Pieces unwrapt
Complex scent inviting
Garlic fingers.
Tany greeness basil and orgeano
Memories of childhood cooking.
Memories of first cooking for friends, adult conversation and red wine.
Memories of cooking for children smiling, laughter and love.
Garlic finger memories.
