Due to unexpected circumstances, I cannot present an original verse today. In keeping with yesterday’s theme, here’s an oldie about cabbage. Enjoy!
Were there ever vegetables so maligned
And saddled with so much baggage
Than the cruciferous family, largely defined
As Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage?
Cauliflower, collards, kohlrabi and kale
Are just as cruciferous, true
But the populous thought will always prevail
That the big three will crucify you
Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage-the smell
Whilst they’re cooking is downright muciferous
Even the names to the ears sound harsh; well,
For certain, not very mellifluous
Most egregious of all is that thing that they do
All the rumbles and gurgles they send
As Odiferous roughage makes it’s way through
Your system, right to the end.
