An Ode To Brussel Sprouts



This is quite a bit overdue my friends It's an ode to Brussel Sprouts Those delicious spherical bundles of joy Not too popular hereabouts Poor wee fellows just want to be loved Along with the other veggies They've long had a real image problem About as popular as a wedgie Thinking of starting a worldwide petition Any Soupers wishing to join Send a hundred dollars to me, Jester Jack You'll receive a commemorate coin Along with the coin you'll receive a bushel Of these oh so luscious little critters As a bonus for ordering before December An autographed picture of John Ritter Hey, it rhymes doesn't it !!! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Oh Oh! I believe John Riter is gone to a better place... You sound like several TV commercials and the Nigerian Check scam all wrapped up in one... Dragon loved it... The penguins want anchovies sent with their Brussel Sprouts... LOL... Silly Man!

    Ahh, "Those delicious spherical bundles of joy" that my son refuses to eat because, as he says, they look like little brains lol. A great write for a much maligned little veggie, Jack! (P.S. very yummy with a mound of crumbled bacon on top!) xox
