Mixed Metaphor

I like that God put

a healthy mix of people on Earth.

All those different colours-

much more appealing

than everything the same.

Maybe some people are too sharp, or sweet, or dry or mushy for your taste-

but God tossed us all around together,

then drizzled us in olive oil and vinegar-

like he was making a salad.
