According to an old story, a beggar comes to a village, carrying an empty pot. He fills the pot with water, drops a large stone in it, and starts cooking in the square.
One of the villagers asks what he's doing, to which he replies that he is making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little "something something" to improve the taste. The villager (although rather stingy) doesn't mind parting with a few vegetables, so these get added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the beggar gives him the "stone soup" spiel once again. The villager gives him a little bit of celery to help out.
As word gets around (like it does in small villages) more and more people walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious pot of stone soup is bubbling on the fire, and is more than enough to share with everyone.
Now, back to our regular review:
If Healthy Choice Had a voice This tasteless phony Minestrone Would be begging to be put out of its misery
Potatoes, dried Lurk inside And the puny pasta Spells disasta For this unappetizing bowl of goopy stew
I see dead peas And celeries And other odd stuff But not enough To give this soup a flavor that could be considered "natural"
I would suggest For the best That it would be wise To economize And try a stone instead of shelling out your hard earned bread for this
