You don’t have to be stirred in like sugar because you’re a liquid already,
Like syrup and honey your pour is always steady.
There’re no dirty spoons to wash when I use your sweet juice,
‘Cause you mix right in – in science we call this to diffuse.
And your taste’s so unique and almost molasses like,
It’d be the first thing I want on a hunger strike.
Oh Agave Nectar I’m so happy I found low-glycemic you,
You’ve changed my life through and through.
My brownies and cupcakes would never have been so light.
It’s hard to believe that you come from a cactus,
Getting you out must’ve taken lots of practice.
But I’m so glad that someone figured it out in the end,
I love you, Agave Nectar. You’re my very best friend.

Here is how one would harvest an agave plant…it’s involves a machete and annoying laughter in the background so beware!
