Food and Drink: A Brief History
by Steven Utley
When people first began to eat,
they mostly ate a lot of meat.
But anyone except a fool
could have come up with a tool
for knocking creatures on the head
— a genius invented bread!
And beer resulted from some thinking
and resulted in much drinking,
and in people getting stewed
and falling face-down in their food.
