On the Relative Value of Food Groups

 

What's all this about wanting
Peas on Earth all the time?

What's wrong with corn, or carrots?
Why don't we ever wish for "World Broccoli!"?

Or ask our children for a little "Cucumbers
and Quiet!"?

Why is it, when we're troubled,
we never pray for "Inner Apricots"?

How did this incredible obsession
with vegetables,
ever begin?

It might just be, however:
that if everybody gardened;
they'd all get along
better
with most of their neighbors.
