Poem: Fried Rice

When you cook all the time,

You develop some skill,

You also end up,

With signature recipes,

Things you are known to make.

And for me,

That’s chili,


I wish it were my fried rice.

I love the challenge of it,

The difficulty to get it right,

Fried rice is skill intensive,

And creative,

Whereas my chili,

Is just yummy things,

In a pot,

Set to high heat,

And allowed to cook for a very long time.

No skill,

All mechanical.

I could mass-produce the stuff—

And if I were interested in being part of the food business,

I might just consider it.

Because then I could make a fair bit of money.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
