Junk Food (Children) - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Spinach, carrots, artichokes,
will not grow the bones of blokes.
Ketchup, chocolate bars and chips
Coca Cola, frequent nips,
always listen to your mates
food's best served on paperplates.

    This reminds me of the style of Spike Milligan
    Love Duncan

    Why not serve this together with your other plate of grub, Herbs? They go well together.

    Always nice to see your poems smiling, Herbs.
