I snarled at the green stuff on my plate
I stared at something I refused to taste
She looked at me and said “Eat those Brussel Sprouts!”
“Mom this is something I could live without!”
She stood there sternly and put her hands on her hips
“I better see those Brussel Sprouts meet your lips!”
I glared at those green balls and closed my eyes
I opened up my mouth and told one Brussel Sprout goodbye
I couldn’t believe that it was yummy!
I couldn’t believe that it was happy in my tummy!
