COUSCOUS WITH GRAPES perfect super food

Summer time all the way to fall

Grapes abounded in Tripoli

White Muscat, Red, Black

Source of Alkaline, Mineral rich

We ate it plain

We drank it squeezed

Out from hand held Mill- processor

The grapes would crush and gush

The seed would mush

Salutary tartaric acid

That aid body rid itself

Of toxin and uric acid

Grape juice that would make

our lips pucker, eyes squint if sour

All the while beneficially

blood purifier

Best flavor was

Friday afternoon

Grapes would accompany

Couscous and vegetables

Soup with chicken

Yellow squash, garbanzo, white beans

Mounds in a plate

For kids incentive

A spoonful conscious,

One grape

Aide to the liver and

Bladder functions

Salt and sweet

All in one

A late lunch, to await

A grand Shabbat dinner

More couscous & no grapes
