bon appetit

if it comes in a can
or it comes in a jar
i can make it myself
which is better by far

i hate to be picky
i hate to be rude
but packaged nutrition
is not really food

it's bad for ya, dude!

it's loaded with sugar & salt & with fat
you really don't want to be eating all that

of course you could have a granola bar
but the grains stick in my teeth

I like the poetry I have read so far.Do you ever do any Limerick dirty or otherwise?How about a ditty with those swans from a few years back.

Hi, John. Glad you like them.

I've used limericks to jump-start my writing in the past. They are relatively easy to write, and fun, even when "otherwise", like ...

There was a young man from Nantucket
Who liked to shoot fish in a bucket.
He said with a grin,
As he ripped off its skin,
If this fish was a duck, I would pluck it.

I have a few poems in draft form. I guess I should get serious and finish them.

I saw seven swans down by my local lake last week. I expect the others to leave soon, and the local mated pair to raise another brood.

A few years ago, there were over 25 visitors this early in the season.

I can't really eat too much prepared food. As I mentioned, I can't get most of it open. I save pickle jars up for when my sons are here.
