Plums et al.......[Foods; Drinks; 'Yummy'; A grocery list? ]
Plum, orange, pear, pomegranate, pineapple,
coffee, tea, Coca-Cola, Fresca, and Snapple.
Rye bread, bran muffin, carrot cake, croissant.
These are some of the foods I might just want.
Pork, beef, lamb, all kinds of meat,
turkey drum sticks, roast duck, and chicken feet,
spinach, beets, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes,
lasagna, angel hair pasta, rice, and potatoes.
Mushrooms, seaweed, garlic, sour cream with chives.
All are found in the diets of some of our lives.
And don't forget cheese: Swiss and Muenster and Provolone.
And fish from stream, lake, or sea, without or with bone.
Clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp, and squid.
Most of these I have tried since I was a kid.
And don't forget hens' eggs, oils, milk, and water of course.
I've even eaten fish eggs (AND sperm!) and once the flesh of a horse.
Throw in various seeds, peanuts, and nuts from nut trees,
and sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger et al, if you please.
