I never tire of eating brussel sprouts now, I love them..|
Time was though when I was younger I hated them
I hated them so much I refused to eat them
I was bribed, if you eat a sprout you can have your pudding
So I popped the little green monster in my mouth
I had my pudding , but kept that sprout in my mouth the whole time.
For Sallee's Short and Telling six line poem, mine is about Brussel sprouts,
it's a true story from when I was around 12, I ate all my pudding but didn't eat
the sprout, it was discovered when an Auntie asked what the lump in my cheek was,
all was revealed and the story got told around my family for years.
