Ode to Potatoes (A Poem for Lent)

English: Potatoes lyonnaiseOh potato I love you
No matter how you look

You can be baked
You can be loaded
You can be scalloped or mashed

Oh potato I love you
No matter how you look

You can be french fried
You can be hashed
You can even be chipped

But today dear potato
I’m laying you aside
For something more dear
Calls me to draw near

You are gone from my life
For the next 40 days
May each thought of you
Cause me to focus on Jesus’s ways
