I Found A Flounder

I found a flounder, fifty pounder! iin my vegetable stew. He ate my carrots. He ate my peas. And he ate my broccoli, too. I like my flounder, my sixty pounder! I think you'd like him, too. He ate my tatters. He ate my beans. And now he weighs seventy-two! So if you hate to eat your vegetables, look closely in your stew. there just might be a flounder there, eating your veggies for you. .

Hello, Donald, Thank you for reading and liking my poem. No, you probably have not read me before because I'm new here. Now I'll go and read one of yours because I like to meet the members.:)

Still chuckling Darlene, I have occasion to write and share poetry with elementary school children. This one would really get them going. These aren't easy to write as you have to back to the second grade to do it.
