Muesli For Brekkie - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
Take a bowl of stainless steel,
a mahogani paddle,
then pour two pints of heavy cream
a bit of citrus peel,
soaked oats, once rolled complete the team
the cook is in the saddle.
This Muesli is a Swiss invention
the Krauts add nuts and seeds.
I give it honourable mention
it meets some human needs.
The French and Spaniards use bananas
some shrivelled up dried fruit,
a handful of sun-blest sultanas,
it all adds up and lets you toot.
And there you have it, healthy food,
restores the missing lead,
and get your pencil in the mood
when it comes time for bed.
