Friday Poetry Encore


After the stunning response from Wordsworth to my last poety effort I thought I'd try a more cerebral effort this time:

Nemesis

Evil green
Childhood nightmare
Watching, Waiting
Stalking...
Inevitability crouched at the edge of my plate:
Broccoli

Jonesbard

"Down With Broccoli!"

I am a no-talent hack compared to you! Exceptional capturing of the childhood malaise of vegetable force-feeding. We protest battery hen farming but leave children languishing in the abuse of their civil rights that is vegetable assault.

Fave line: "Inevitability crouched at the edge of my plate."
