In this book you'll find 100 poems to read,
But you won't know what they are about, there's no answer or lead,
You'll have to guess, you'll have a try,
But I thank you for reading my,
Book of poems, 'Guess the thing!'
Have a go and lets see who'll win!

23. The Hated Food



You get your food, ready to eat,

Say hello to your favourite, meet and greet!

Lift up the fork and knife together,

You’re so bad at this it could take forever.

You pick it up, and then see it all.

The thing you hate, long and tall.

They’re meant to be good, they’re meant to help,

You see the colour and let out a yelp.

“Mum!” you cry, "This can’t be right!"

You’ve had nightmares about this, day and night.

That horrible colour, which says to you “Health”

I tried to get away, with swiftness and stealth.

Mum pulled me back and I faced the food,

Descending into a very bad mood.

I lifted it up, onto my fork,

As dad popped his wine bottle cork.

Into my mouth, I chewed and chewed,

As a grimace came because I disliked this food.
