To Those Hoarding Pasta…

To the folks hoarding pasta
Please treat it with care
When boiling the water
Add a liberal pinch of salt
Taste test two minutes before
The packet says to stop
Add a ladle of the water
And its starchy goodness
To the sauce
And keep the water when you strain it
Lest the dish dry out
Like too many a soul
In these times of doubt
Treat your pasta with the care
That you may not show fellow beings
And if you cook your pasta well
And don’t forget to share

-Matt Novacevski

“All I maintain is that on this earth there are pestiliences and there are victims, and it ‘s up to us, so far as possible, not to join forces with the pestiliences” -Albert Camus, The Plague
