Vegetables - 2007

Vegetables are plants that mostly grow in the ground
some are long and thin, others are fat dirty and round.
Some are eaten raw, whilst other are cooked, mashed or boiled
as kids we hate them, because of the bugs that live within the soil
Knowing whatever is done, it wouldn't hide that awful taste
we pushed them round and round, to the side of our plates
Hoping that in due time, they'll aIl up and disappear
then comes the word, we were most dreading to hear
You can't leave the table, till all your greens have gone.
That is probably a punishment like someone being flogged.
Who ever invented greens should be cooked and boiled with frogs.
