Ballad of Salad

I’m not a rabbit

don’t make me eat salad

I like potatoes and meat, me

you can

put in sweet herbs, if you like

to season it right

but give me steak, pork, chicken every night

.

I’m not some herbivore

so don’t make me

eat boring veggies, wait

I do like a bit of fruit

or the odd carrot, but I’m not a rabbit

.

What’s that you’ve got?

A bit of pumpkin and a turnip?

I’ll have that

Some swede and courgette, I’ll take

you can

put a bit on the edge of my plate

maybe some marrow tomorrow

perhaps some beetroot, as a boost

.

however

I’m not a grazer, me

you can’t, so

don’t make me eat greens

no peas, lettuce, beans

just leave them be, maybe

in the corner of my plate

if I get sick of potatoes and meat or

in case of constipation

I may consider them a treat

I may eat salad, you understand

just as a tonic

but I’m not a rabbit
