Hollandaise can amaze Bobs and Rays for days and days
And Worcestershire can cause a sure expenditure (more sauce for her!)
But when we still want condiments that thrill us with astonishment
To be devoured in hurried zest the way wild boars eat chicken breasts
A transcedental ecstasy, to masticate a thing tasty
So when we say "It's heavenly," we really mean it, literally
And we demand the best-est taste, to cause tensions to escalate
-- The flavors and the flavor-nots, the one that wants what the other's got --
And flavoring makes savoring turn into reckless slavering
I imagine that being said in Bob Dylan's voice.
