I have a problem with my mom

at every evening meal.

She says I must eat vegetables

no matter how I feel.

I tell her celery makes me feel

my hair is made of string,

and that spinach, beans, and corn

make my toenails sting.

Potatoes make my left ear itch,

tomatoes make me sleep,

turnips make me nervous,

and broccoli makes me weep.

Mom says that I’m just whining

and trying to get my way,

and if I don’t eat vegetables,

well, she won’t let me play!

Then yesterday at school,

I started feeling sick,

and for some reason, I just craved

a great big carrot stick!
