When potatoes first came to Europe

From the New World,

They were prized for their


Much like tulips.

I wonder who first looked at the sprouts

Poking from the earth and

Disregarding the blooms

Dug up the tuber

And took a bite.

It was a clear case of

Survival over aesthetics

Although I think

We need both.
