If I could have anything here on my plate.
It wouldn't be something I'm likely to hate.
I'd be happy with something green as an apple,
Or anything related to soda or snapple.
I am happier still if it isn't too squishy,
Or ends up too spicy or even too fishy.
Celery's fine and so is potato,
And there's carrots or even tomato.
I said I like beans and even mom's chili,
But giving me this is just short of silly.
Why not meat or a portion of trout?
Just give me a meal that isn't a sprout!
