A bit of lore and legend I hold in my hand,
of which vampires and demons could not withstand.
Related to the lily and cousin to the leak,
even rumored to add vigor to sexual technique.
This modest stinking rose claims to keep poverty away;
with excellent health an added bonus. Oh, how can I betray
such loyal, steadfast cloves? Toss you in the dish I must,
and pray that bad breath will not my love disgust!

This is for "Magpie Tales". A new prompt comes out either Monday or Tuesday of each week, so this one almost didn't get finished in time. It was really a challenge for me to do this one as I insisted on working with rhyming. I also entered this in One Stop Poetry's "One Shot Wednesday". I read in one book that the garlic is also related to the lily. So, I thought I would throw in one more photo of my beautiful lilies.
