More Salt

There’s a limit

To the amount of salt

You can put in food and still enjoy it.

Past a certain point

If you add more salt

Your tongue will curl and

Your stomach churn.

Some things should not

Be done in excess.

Excess salt doesn’t make up for

A meal poorly prepared

And excess words don’t make up for

Weak storylines,

Or star studded cast

Make up for a blandly scripted film,

Or an additional degree

Compensate for a career lacking direction,

Or more money invested to cover up

A failing business model,

Or cute selfies and expensive gifts

For a relationship in decline.

Salt is good

But it has its limits.
