An account of dietary forays into the unknown.
The time was
Minded their manners
All leafy and green
Now, they hung out
In the strangest places
Cheerios with lentils
With ice cream
Out of tune songs
The new thing
This is a stick-up!
What do you mean, this is a stick-up?
Shut up. Get your hands up!
I’ve got a potato and I’m not afraid to use it!
You don’t want to do this, Kid.
I just wanted to be somebody, He sobbed.
You are somebody–Kid.
You’re a tall, handsome piece of broccoli. Stand up tall. Be proud of what you are.
