Each To His Own Taste

Each To His Own Taste

By Elton Camp

A display of canned squid in the store
It’s a thing I’ve never seen before

That food is fine as far as I know
I’d never want to try it though

To eat a squid canned in ink!
“It’s so disgusting,” I think

“Extra Quality” doesn’t entice
I have no interest in the price

Yet no logical reason can I supply
Why this I’d refuse to eat or buy

An animal with its eyes in place
On my plate, I don’t want to face

Likewise, I don’t regard a treat
Cat, dog, snake or horse meat

Call me a hillbilly if you will
Eating squid gives me no thrill

    I'm the pickiest eater in the world and could never be considered a "foodie". I also would never consider eating "canned squid" (BLECH!). Fun, comical write; enjoyed :)
