The Parrot

Alphabet Soup

Andrew Purcell

A heavenly amalgamation, best served hot,

Billowing with steam, delivered in a piping bowl.

Chewy to some, tasty to most, and acceptable any time of day;

Delightful to those who enjoy

Educational broth with hidden wisdom enclosed.

Flavorful, and full of wonder and jubilation,

Giddy to little kids watching television on rainy days.

Half liquid, half solid, something that

I find to be pleasurable, and a

Joyous combination for a fulfilling meal.

Knowing the best spoon to use, and the right temperature to eat at, ensures that the

Lexicons that are

Mashed together on top are

Nice to those who indulge.

Oh, I understand that…

People will pick apart which soups are

Queens and Kings, the royalty of the family.

Reaching across the table to grab an array of

Soup is a choice that is difficult to make, but

The selections available fit everyone’s wants and needs.

Underneath a layer of cheese is a delectable French Onion, and an array of

Vegetable soups can also be satisfactory.

When will the soup wars end, some will say they…

Expect it to end in a few lines.

You may notice the error above, but the

Zest of this meal is something for all to love.

About the Contributor
Dan Wilkins, Writer
I have been a journalist and sports commentator since 2016, and have since taken my aspirations to writing for The Parrot at AHS. I started out as a public address announcer for the local Audubon Little League, serving there for five years, along with ventures in youth football in Oaklyn, and a litany of sports for AHS. The sports that I cover as of this publication are soccer, field hockey, and football in the fall, basketball and wrestling in the winter, and baseball in the spring. Besides broadcasting and commentary, my other main interests include music, riding my eight-speed bike, photography, and travel. I am a huge fan of progressive rock, including the bands Genesis, Rush, and Yes, among others. When I'm done with high school, I plan to attend a four-year university to pursue a career in sports broadcasting and hopefully get a job in the media for Major League Baseball in the future.
