Headline Poem 6/27/14 -- Tomato Soup

There isn't much better than a fresh, ripe summer tomato. I read this headline tonight about the worst thing to do with one -- put it in the refrigerator! http://qz.com/226955/science-implores-you-dont-put-your-tomatoes-in-the-refrigerator/ Here is today's poem. 

Tomato Soup 

Rich and creamy, it satisfies the soul. 
On summer evenings it's all you'll want in your bowls. 
One night 
you may feel like switching things up,
aiming to 
try less salt to fill you up. 
But. 
Let me warn you 
fair and plain,
low sodium tomato soup just
doesn't taste the same,

for once you're used to something 
the way you like it, 
you won't want it to change.
