Poem: "A Lively Feast"
This is the linkback perk for the September 4, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl, originally hosted by DW user Dialecticdreamer.

A Lively Feast

Most of the time,
humans and Fifers
got along fine, but
sometimes it was
a bit of a stretch.

Feasts, for example --
humans liked to lay out
platters of food in patterns
of appetizing colors, while
Fifers put out baskets of
things that were still moving.

"What is  it with them?"
asked Captain Judd,
wrinkling his nose.

"Well, erm, I don't

said Ensign Obert.
"I'm still working on
the culinary vocabulary.
It's a bit ... unusual."

"Unusual? How?"
said Commander Hale.

"You know how we have
the color words arranged in
a spectrum?" said Ensign Obert.
"I think they do that with flavors,
only I haven't figured out all of
the categories. It's confusing."

Some people insist that their food be extremely FRESH.
