Food Safety Leviticus 19:5-8

Even tasty, well-cooked food can spoil if left uneaten long.

Fresh prepared with grateful gestures –  there’s no way you can go wrong.

Wait a day, it’s still o-kay, but do not take a further risk.

On the third day it is foul, unfit to serve from any dish.


When disease has fallen on you through contagion, take no blame.

But if you’ve been eating, drinking, stuff you shouldn’t, show some shame.

Food that’s fresh, or salted, pickled, when prepared can be sublime

When your tummy throws back rot you’ve eaten you make all things slime.
