Mom… your yams are mushy
and the mushroom’s foul and yucky.
Your cabbage smells like garbage
this supper sucks, I’m so unlucky,
Mom… your soup’s disgusting
and sprouts for me are toxin.
Why do you serve this roadkill
when it’s spiced with pure dioxin?

Ha ha ! 🙂
It makes me wonder if that roadkill really is spiced with dioxin.
LOL! My husband’s favorite comic strip, along with Pearls Before Swine!
Hope your mother didn’t read this, lol.
Poor Mom gets no respect! But roadkill? YUCK for sure!
I’ve always had a huge love of Calvin and his wild imagination – this is one of my absolute faves!
haha know this story too well, my kids would sneak food into odd places just not to eat them
Ha, ha. I love Calvin and Hobbs. A great demonstration of the yuck response to dinner
I love all those foods. Maybe you should adjust your taste buds, little boy, and eat what’s good for you.
Dioxins come from meat and dairy. Thanks for the research trip.
I love Calvin and Hobbes. I also live cabbage, sprouts, and sweet potatoes. Good stuff. Fun poem.
It’s so interesting the way children develop or don’t develop tastes for foods…frustrating for parents and caregivers. You made the whole experience comical and I liked the reference to Calvin and Hobbes.
I hated all vegetables except corn when a child. And we would all run when my mom made lamb stew. Today I love almost every vegetable and lamb when it is made right!
I’m a fan of Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbs…and your poetry, Bjorn 🙂
cartoons are awesome! and your poem’s good too, really captures those awful dinners. I remember i made myself so disgusted at eating brocolli that i puked. (i like it now though)
Sure is a big misery for Mom to satisfy every palate in the household. Sometimes things can be out of control with such tactless comments from the broods! But it hurts bad!
oh my!!…but this is fantastic to read out loud…:)
LOL. I imagine some tables this weekend required some diplomatic suppression of grimacing. This made me chuckle, Bjorn.
Ha! Such an amusing verse — yucky sounds about right. XD
HAHA! As others commented, this is especially wonderful when read aloud (as I’ve just done for my co-worker, who is now in stitches). Great one, Björn!
You have a gift for hyperbole. Now suck it up and eat your roadkill!
This is hilarious Bjorn! LOVE it!!
Sounds awful, but when you are little you have to eat it, when you are old you have a choice
Fun. Bjorn. Poor kid, we should feel sorry for him? If I were Mom I’d say, “yucky, yes, and your bed’s been moved into the street. Now hit it!”
Now that’s putting the uk in yuk! Well done, Bjorn! 🙂
Oh good lord I have to deal with this kind of thing frequently. Well, maybe not quite so rude but still. Sigh!
