Not only does a loving hand caress
the skin which relishes the feelin’.
It can create from food not just a mess
but eye catchers that really reel in.
What pleases eyes is said to please the gut,
though only in the pudding lies the proof.
You pick it up and eat it, but …
with certain meals you better keep aloof.
As pretty as some bait does lure you
some self-restraint will patently prove wise.
And every host will evidently sure do
what head-chefs all around advise.
