I don't like broccoli.
I never have.
I mean, it's ok if you're allowed to put cheese on it,
Or something equally delicious and fattening that dilutes the nastyness of
what I like to call: bro-coli
But, until now I never really understood
When I was little I'd ask Madre,
"Because it's good for you."
And so it is with broccoli on The Plate of Life.
It may not taste like it,
But "broccoli" is good for you
And no matter how hard you try to get rid of it,
To sneak it into your napkin or feed it to the dog,
The only way to make it go away, is to dig your heals in
And eat it.
Hey, it could be worse.
Some people get liver,
So chow down, folks
Cause there's plenty more where that came from.
I hear the dessert is to die for.
As my friend Travis says,
"Hold onto your fork,
The best is yet to come."
