Green Cuisine

Lurking in fuzzy leftovers is seen
A quivering, crawling hairball of green
A florescent prune
Or cheese from the moon
Gurgles gastric, plastic alien spleen

The miser squire requires gluts of caffeine
To dissect this science project's gangrene
Harpoon on a spoon
Zoom to the saloon
Lunch ladies' supreme mystery cuisine.

With my being one with a very fickle stomach, I fully understand the necessity of avoiding green and grossly tainted food. Great limerick and very creative!

G'day Michelle … sounds very tasty. You probably know that sausages and pies are known as mystery bags in some circles - thanks Michelle - Lindsay

No, didn't know that - I just learned in Australia cookies are called 'biscuits' - slang is sure funny!

I just remembered, I've somewhere else to go for dinner; sorry I can't make it. Good luck in the contest.

But there's always room for green Jello!

You put a lot of 'umph' into this, adding more admirable intensity to each image laden line. Superb job. I hope no one does nose garbage - I'll gag, no - I'll click off before that happens. Really, truly - you done good. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Thanks, CayCay, I almost put 'gag me w/a spoon' but that would be too dated!

What? No escargot? Good luck, then! Aloha! Rico
