The Power of Tolerating Vegetables

Have you ever
Wanted to
Just be able to
Sit and chew

Those disgusting greens
On your dinner plate
To stop you from
Feeling faint

Artichoke, carrot,
Spinach, beet.
I would rather
Chew on feet.

If I had a power
I would wish
To get those vegetables
Off my dish!

But how would my parents
Let me be?
I’d have to eat them 一
“1…2…3!”

But with this power,
Well, down the hatch!
Vegetables have
Met their match!

I’ll freely explore
The nutritious world
While everyone else
Is ready to hurl.

And when I’m at the
Dinner table,
I will eat my
Vegetables!
