A Story

Oh, I do not like cilantro,
For I think it tastes like soap,
Like excretions from a beetle,
Like the breath of those who tope.

Oh, I do not like cilantro,
Of all the green herbs in the garden,
This single leafy menace,
Does against my palate harden.

You may call it coriander,
I really could not care,
Just leave it out my soup, please,
The flavor 'twill impair.

You won't me find braising bars of soap,
Or stewing up an insect,
Such culinary aberrations
Should we violently reject.

So, too do I spurn cilantro,
Spurn its nasty aldehydes,
Much preferring to use parsley,
For the sapor it provides.
