Picky Tongues – What is Not?

Picky Tongues – What is Not?

You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, spicy (not a taste per se, but we’re generous): which one do you choose to lose?

Umami it is not

Neither spicy be

Sour is not dour

Sweet is a necessity

Salty is not paltry

But

Bitter, bitter is to balk, acrid and arcane

Except of course if it coffee be

The ambrosia and acidity

Fragrant aroma glee

For this, there would be

A focus on the acidity

The heaviness and liveliness

Without I cannot be.
