What is your favorite kind of potato and why?

We found this poem from a 1961 publication titled An Anthology of the Potato for the Irish Potato Marketing Company, Ltd. All poems in this edition are in English, or translated from Irish into English. Enjoy.

We praise all the flowers that we fancy

Sip the nectar of fruit ere they’re peeled,

Ignoring the common old tater

When, in fact, he’s King of the Field.

Let us show the old boy we esteem him,

Sort of dig him up out of the mud;

Let us show him he shares our affections

And crown him with glory—Kind Spud
