Write a secret poem.
What made her chopped liver the best,
did fried onions give it that zest?
I remember the grinder she pressed
cooked liver through with finesse.
For many years I was clueless,
and then one day she confessed
after keeping it close to her vest,
secret ingredient–seltzer. Who would have guessed?
