Taboo Words Contest Entry August 2020
Potatoes, eggs, and celery
Blend with onion, mustard
And mayo so creamy
To make a potato salad

Take it to a weekend event
Hope for perfect weather
A cloudless sunny day
Bringing everyone together

Mother will bring her specialty
As do all the others
Tried and true recipes
Loved by all the generations

So many sumptuous delights
Spread across the tables
A veritable feast
Of odors that defy labels

Potato salad and green beans,
Jello molds, cobs of corn,
Stacks of ground meat so lean,
Fruits and vegetables galore

Charcoal a mass of red embers
Games are now in full swing
Much chatter and laughter
And so many children playing

Hamburgers prepared for eating
Cheese is sliced and ready
Buns buttered for toasting
Plates are passed around the tables

Everyone prepares to go home
Children starting to fret
Until the next event
No potato salad is left
