Broccoli - Poem by Sandra Brennan

I read an article on aversion therapy
And decided to give it a try
Everytime you cross my mind,
I replace that thought with broccoli.
So now I've been thinking about broccoli
24/7 for well over a week now,
Enough so that I could write the
Worlds first, all broccoli cookbook,
Enough so that I wouldn't be surprised
If my brain was now green and resembled it.
Enough so that I don't think I will
Ever want to eat broccoli again.
And the funny thing is that now,
Everytime I open the freezer
And see that half used bag of frozen broccoli,
I think about you.
Damn it to hell.

    This made me laugh. I love the last line. It just captures everything, all the frustration and exasperation and annoyance, snapped up in that one statement. Damn it to hell indeed. (Report) Reply
