  • ". . . Do you like cooking, Phil?" "Not really.
    I can't abide its cruelty."
    "Cruelty, Phil?" "Right—you don't merely
    Pop corns, you beat eggs, wilfully
    Stone cherries, whip cream, chop and skewer,
    Are happier when cheese is bluer—
    And then there's batter, rack of lamb,
    And squash and mace. . . ad nauseam.
    No. Violence and exploitation
    Of co-comestibles would be
    A sin. My conscience troubles me
    With delicate denunciation:
    Far better not to cook, and starve
    In purity, than baste and carve."
