The Indigestibles

The Prompt: Mouths Wide Shut—Are you a picky eater? Share some of your favorite food quirks with us (the more exotic, the better!). Omnivores: what’s the one thing you won’t eat?

The Indigestibles

No room for mushrooms, can’t live with liver.
The thought of brains just makes me shiver.
Though I like pizza, my other law
is I don’t eat tomatoes raw!

Drinking milk’s against my wishes.
Fish is simply for the fishes.
I eat no veal or other baby,
and steak for me is simply “maybe.”

So if it’s your plan to invest
in things that I like to ingest,
I won’t make it any harder
for you to come and stock my larder.

All else you want to bring to feed me—
what edibles you wish to cede me:
Injera, curries, Thai, Chinese—
all are sure to tempt and please.

Except for one thing I just thought of
that in the past I’ve had a lot of.
There’s one more mouthful I won’t try.
I have no taste for humble pie!

    Martha, you give me whiplash! I hadn’t even finished putting the tags on and you’d already commented! Wifi is off at my house so had to drive into town to use a friend’s Wifi. Thanks for giving me an immediate perk! Judy

        I know. A hyphen is as good as an engagement ring these days, but after due consideration, I’d just like us to be very good friends!! I’ve had too many hassles with one hyphen to consider adding another!

      Thanks, Albin. It improves my day considerably to be able to be silly first thing in the morning! I know it keeps me from more serious writing, but life is short and the older I get, the more important laughter becomes! Thanks for reading and enjoying! Judy/Remi
