Green Broccoli and Lamb

romanesco

Look at what I picked up from the market this weekend!  A BEAUTIFUL romanesco!  Before eating it, I decided to turn it into a poem first, with lots of cheers and help from Plumster :)

(adapted from Dr Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham; writing assistant: Plumster)

That Pam-I-Am!

That Pam-I-Am!

I do not like

that Pam-I-Am!

Do you like green broccoli and lamb?

I do not like them,

Pam-I-Am.

I do not like

green broccoli and lamb.

Would you like them here or there?

I would not like them

here or there.

I would not like them

anywhere.

I do not like

green broccoli and lamb.

I do not like them,

Pam-I-Am.

Would you like them

in a bowl?

Would you like them

on a plate?

I do not like them

in a bowl.

I do not like them

on a plate.

I do not like them

here or there.

I do not like them

anywhere.

Would you eat them

in your house?

Would you eat them

with a louse?

Not in a bowl!

Not on a plate!

Not in my house!

Not with a louse!

I would not eat them here or there

I would not eat them anywhere.

I would not eat green broccoli and lamb

I do not like them, Pam-I-Am.

Would you?  Could you?

In a jar?

Eat them?  Eat them!

Here they are.

I would not,

could not,

in a jar!

You may like them.

You will see.

You may like them

with a bee!

I would not, could not like a bee .

Not in a jar!  You let me be.

I do not like them in a bowl.

I do not like them on a plate.

I do not like them in my house.

I do not like them with a louse.

I do not like them here or there.

I do not like them anywhere.

I do not like green broccoli and lamb.

I do not like them, Pam-I-Am.

A plane!  A plane!

Could you, would you,

on a plane?

Not on a plane!  Not in a house!

Not with bee!  Pam! Let me be!

I would not, could not, in a bowl.

I could not, would not, on a plate.

I will not eat them in my house.

I will not eat them with a louse.

I will not eat them here or there.

I will not eat them anywhere.

I do not eat green broccoli and lamb.

I do not like them, Pam-I-Am.

You do not like them.

So you say,

Try them!  Try them!

And you may,

Try them and you may, I say.

Pam!

If you will let me be,

I will try them.

You will see.

Say!

I like green broccoli and lamb!

I do!  I like them, Pam-I-Am!

And I would eat them in a bowl.

And I would eat them on a plate.

And I will eat them in my house.

And with a louse.  And in a jar.

And with a bee.  And on a plane.

They are so good, so good, you see!

And I will eat them here and there.

Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

I do so like

green broccoli and lamb!

Thank you!

Thank you,

Pam-I-Am.
