Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

A fussy eater in his teens
Simply refused to eat his greens
And so his mum devised a ploy
In his ice cream she mixed bok choy

I dare say his friends were not green with envy.

Ha...! Your poems are wonderful. They remind me of the "Little Willie" poems.

Little Willie killed his sister.
She was dead before we missed her.
Willie's always up to tricks.
Ain't he cute? He's only six.

I know a whole bunch of those... sadly. *heh*

I think there is a kelp something-or-other in ice cream.

Bok Choy in the ice cream? How absurd.
I guess Willie's Mum hadn't heard,
She ought to learn to read the label,
Before she brings things to the table,
Ice cream is full of carageean,
and that's an algae (red, not green).

Bok Choy?
Oh boy! :-)))

No wonder he climbed up the Gian Beanstalk!

Cuckoo said...

Ha Ha.. you gave me some idea to pass it on to my aunt whose son is like this.


Maggie May said...

He really is a naughty boy
to pick so much at his bok choy.
Mum's making a rod for her own back
To have to camouflage each snack!

Hahaha...good idea. Why didn't I think of that when my kids were young.

Wish I'd got these four lines some years sooner.

Ewwww! LOL just imagine what that would look like!

womaninawindow said...

Ah, I'm so green, I don't even know what bok choy is! Does that make me healthy?

There are beans in Japanese ice cream, aren't there? Yum.
