Children's Poems By John W. Mcewers: Billy Butterbean - Poem by John W. McEwers
Billy Butterbean was a boy who wanted to eat ice cream
So he dreamed up a daydream that would make his mom seem
To think he cared about his body such
That they were on the same team.
So every day for lunch and dinner he would eat his peas.
If he would eat his daily peas then he could get a scoop or two.
And if he put peas in his cereal then he could have some hot fudge too.
If he snacked on peas between his meals
He'd cover his sundae in cherry goo.
Butterbean could always be seen snacking on his peas.
After many weeks of this, Billy Butterbean grew mean.
His organs may have been healthy but his dermis grew dark green.
His mother had to intervene.
She grounded him: 'No more ice cream.'
And that's how Billy Butterbean lost his faith in peas.
