I Tossed My Veggies -by Lois Macdonald

I tossed my veggies
Counting 1,2,3
First came the broccoli
Next came the peas
And counting 4,5,6
I threw in celery sticks
Until the whole concoction
Made me feel quite sick!

Counting on to 7
With an 8 and 9
Mixing in green lettuce
Made it look like slime
But when I finally reached 10
Mother brought the dressing
And with sweet relief
I cried out “What a blessing!”

So, the moral of this story
Is those veggies are good
While most are delicious
Only one tastes like wood
Don’t feed it to your dog
Nor your cat or canary
And never take a bite of
A veggie that turns hairy!

Now please put on a smile
Wipe away that frown
When you chew real hard
They usually go down so

Just plug up your nose
Close your eyes real tight
Toss those veggies back
Until they’re out of sight!
