don’t hate on cilantro.

As garnishes go
I’m not much of a pro
But here I will state my opinion.
Tall and verdantly so
I love cilantro
The blessed flora of my herbal dominion.

I’m a fan as you see
Of this little green tree
And order it wherever I go.
Not quite coriander
(Which is ever much blander)
And the seed from which my flower must grow.

But today you all hate
This innocent spice on your plate
Like you’ll die if you actually must eat it.
But by the bushel or bunch
Breakfast, dinner or lunch,
It’s delicious and you just can’t beat it.

Happy I Hate Cilantro Day to all you tasteless haters who don’t know a good thing when you seed it!
