Ode to Corn

Is there no dish,
That couldn't use just a bit,
Whole kernel or cream,
Corn makes it extreme.

Lasagna to meatballs,
Apple Pie to pork roast,
Without the help of corn,
It would all taste like toast.

Whoops. error on my part,
Toast is a bad sample,
Because inside our house,
Toast and corn is a staple.

Marshmallows can try,
but they just can't compare,
They just turn to mush,
When corn is always there.

What does is matter,
Eight cans or thirty,
In less than six hours,
We'll need just as many.
