chimichurri [a poem]

Chimi and churri were long time friends,
the pair created the most perfect of blends.

Chimi was spicy and churri had depth,
when paired together their use had much breadth.

They complemented each other and didn’t compete,
they each played their role, which was no easy feat.

Easily egos can get in the way,
which will lead any journey to go far astray.

So with effort and balance the pair made it work,
neither chimi nor churri would act like a jerk.

And because of this chimichurri would flourish,
they’d provide the world flavor and bellies they’d nourish.
