Where were you when the soup hit the boil?

Where were you when the soup hit the boil?

 

Can’t miss Helen Clark on telly,

It’s election time again.

Reheat the soup upon the cooker

–ads coming up, we’ll eat it then.

 

Such beautiful pumpkin soup

took hours to cook and puree

Thick and ploppy, bright-orange, lip-smacking…

Ignore at your peril when it’s on the way.

 

Didn’t even hear the bubbles

But my oh my when I saw the troubles

Pumpkin soup up to the ceiling

Splashed on walls kettle bench utensils breadbox radio heater floor

What a feeling.

 

Spent the next day cleaning.
