The Health-Food Diner

Rating: 4.8
The Health-Food Diner
No sprouted wheat and soya shoots
And Brussels in a cake,
Carrot straw and spinach raw,
(Today, I need a steak).

Not thick brown rice and rice pilaw
Or mushrooms creamed on toast,
Turnips mashed and parsnips hashed,
(I'm dreaming of a roast).

An enticingly delicious work from the crafty hands of Miss Angelou who was a fine cook of a poet. I agree with her, While vegetables are nice, meat is simply divine, while it is more environmentally beneficial to be a vegetarian, its a treasure to the taste buds to pound down on a nice juicy pork chop. Great pick for poem of the day.
