An apple a day keeps the doctor away

and  an onion a day makes it stay that way

      Oh lol good write and pic M.
      Does Miss Berles have a sprout - or 10 - or baked beans, to keep the doctor away?!

      • Michael Edwards

        She eats butter beans - don't hear much of them these days - a blast from the past?

            Woah wow yay clever!! We use onions everyday in cooking and a lot of people speak of its benefits. Must be good for these crazy flu times I suppose too. Cheers!

            Plz do read and comment my newest poem too. Thanks

            • Michael Edwards

              We also use them a lot - my wife is Burmese so we enjoy a lot of curries and eastern cuisine - not the only reason I married her of course πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

              Off to look at your latest posting.

              Don't waste any time starving yourself of apples... that doctor is not going to call for fear you will cough at them. I wonder whether any GPs have been furlowed.... i really can't imagine what they get up yo during their 'working day' at the moment, they're not seeing any patients in my neck of the orchard.

              Onions, I love them.

              Your srtwork today reminded me of the album cover of Chicago 3 back in the early 70's.

              • Michael Edwards

                Actually I do eat an apple away - sadly it doesn't keep the dentist away - suffering from toothache and have to wait till next tuesday to get it sorted.

              • Neville

                it seems you know your onions sir....

                laugh, I nearly cried....

                Both very clever. Clever art, clever humor. If only they had grown onions in Eden. Could have saved a lot of trouble.- Phil A.

                Ha ha - how true Michael. More aging couplets please.

              • Suresh

                so I can go back to having garlic again????????

                A white bowl with a blue rim, a little water and a peeled onion, into a pre-heated oven for an hour and you have the perfect remedy as used by farmers I believe during the war years as their defence against everything but Hitler's war machine. Good advice Michael. Joe
