Garlic Love
by Nigel Mowat-Napier

If you have friends who don't like garlic,
Here the story starts and ends.
You don't need to be barbaric,
You can always change your friends.

It is the food of Aphrodite,
It will intensify desires,
If you wear some on your nightie,
It will keep away vampires.

It is also antibiotic,
And it can stave off death,
In bed you'll be erotic,
With garlic on your breath.

So don't be sentimental,
If you want to be a winner,
Live like a Continental
And put garlic in your dinner.

Garlic comes in handy,
The ancient scribes have written,
It keeps you healthy, makes you randy,
And stops your neck from being bitten.

With garlic love, all men and wives,
Can love without restriction,
And attribute long and healthy lives
To garlic clove addiction.
