    Default The State of the Onion (CTG)

    First off, it stinks.
    And there are so many layers,
    no wonder nothing gets done.
    Or undone.

    I am featured poet this week at Here and Now, Winter on the South Frontier, Friday, January 22, 2010.

    Well done Chris

    You know your onions! [an expression of UK origin, not sure whether it's used in the US?]

    ONION: from about 1130AD - formed from the Anglo-Fr. word "Union" [meaning the joining of things] and from O.Fr. word "Oignon" from L. Unionem (nom. unio), colloquial rustic Roman for "a kind of onion".

    Now, you really do know your onions!

    Thank you, dazza. I didn't know that information about the onion so it's great to learn it.
