Food Limericks and Poems


Today is just for fun and laughs.


1. I once bought a huge bag of rice

then thought that it tasted so nice

I bought thirty more

now my biggest chore

is setting the traps for the mice!

q1 trivia 2


2. Most pizzas have cheese and I’ve found

that olives and chilies abound

the flavor just rocks

but what of the box?

Why square when the pizza is round?


3. I fell in love – for real

and cooked her up a meal,

she tasted – left

I was bereft

what’s wrong with chocolate eel?

5. I tasted Australian stew,

quite hearty and nutritious, too

then I was left cold

when somebody told

me the meat bits were all kangaroo!

Jelly, Jam, and Buttered Toast

z cinnamon


Jelly, jam, and buttered toast.
I like breakfast food the most.
Bagels, cream cheese, juices — fresh squeeze,
make me say, pass more here please.

Lunch will often make me mutter.
I’m not fond of peanut butter.
I hate chips that won’t go crunch.
Truly, I do not like lunch.

Now dinner is another meal
I’ll take or leave, that’s how I feel.
There’s always veggies I can’t stand.
I have to eat them on demand.

If I could choose and have my way.
well, we’d eat breakfast food all day.

Autumn Corn

1 corn 33


Corn on the stalk is so sturdy to stand.
Corn set in rows neatly cover the land.
Plucked from their stalks and then stacked where they park it,
loaded on trucks and then sent out to market.

Corn perched on shelves in the grocery store,
packed up and stacked up from ceiling to floor.
Pulled off the shelves, neatly placed in a cart.
Off to the checkout and then the fun starts.
Corn boiled in pans till the water runs yellow.
Biting so crunching, its taste sweet, but mellow.

It’s been my favorite, since I was born,
salted up, buttered up, early fall corn.

It is a small world indeed!
