Ray Stearn Panacea For All Ills

Panacea for all Ills

In praise of brown algae

If you’re desperate and lonely
If your breath smells really bad
If the love heart in your mouth’s
The only love you ‘ve ever had
Sea kelp, sea kelp, sea kelp.

If you cry upon the shoulder
Of mutton in the shop
If you go on weeping all night long
And never seem to stop
Sea kelp, sea kelp, sea kelp.

If your dog just up and left you
Faithful hound around no more
And you’d walk out on your life
If you could only find the door
Sea kelp, sea kelp, sea kelp.

I should stop these words from flowing
Forming into useless rhyme
Perhaps avoid a sonnet
For I know for me it’s time to
Sea kelp, sea kelp, sea kelp.
