Ode to Garlic Salt | June Self Portrait

Lately my cooking’s been wonderfully snappy
thanks to a salt making my mouth so blame happy.
McCormick, McCormick, you boggle my reasoning
I’m starstruck ( it’s true!) with this marvelous seasoning.

A vegetable that might have once seemed malicious
Transforms into something truly delicious.
Put it on meat when you’re going to roast it,
Put it on bread when you’re going to toast it.

This stuff makes the whole world seem better and brighter
All who partake will seem so much politer.
Bring with to work! To your in-laws! Vacation!
This spice is quite suitable to every occasion.

Oh garlic salt, garlic salt!  Noble and true.
It would be so foolish to pass over you.
The king of the spices, the spice of my heart
Lowly and humble, yet a work of true art!
