The Taming of The Stew

If you know your onions
And your onions know you,
Then it is beyond doubt
That you’ll make a splendid stew.

But if your onions were soft
When you gave them poke,
Then your stew will be sadly
Beyond any hope.

Now carrots are a thing that
Can be misunderstood.
They should be left rather firm
But not as hard as any wood.

When it comes to flavouring
Please put in a dash of sage.
Take a wooden spoon and
Give it a stir at this stage.

Next just add the meat
And in the oven do place,
Whilst asking the cooking Gods
To bless it with some grace!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
