The Right Ingredients by Mark Andrew Heathcote

You’ve got all the right ingredients I need

You’re like sweet crème fresh to me

Soft and delicate with a kick of lemon

On a stick of celery & a bit of mild heat

A bit of wild horseradish & something non-

Fattening in the middle of the night to eat.


You’re like a rib eye steak very juicy

You’re so very lean, you, keep me mean

To keep me keen, together we’re like-

Salt & pepper, with a little bit of rosemary

Some wild thyme a drizzle of olive oil & red wine

You’ve got all the right ingredients I need.


You’re like a sweet piece of cheesecake

With enough strawberry tang to leave

Ah, whispers of vanilla ice cream.

You’ve got all the right ingredients I need

The faintest tastes of mint chocolate, lingering

Murmurs of naughtiness implanted in my heart & soul.
