My best and my worst childhood memories, Are of vegetables quite without doubts, The first is of happily shelling the peas, The other confronting the loathed Brussels sprouts, The latter grey, soggy or brick hard, half raw, I fed to the dog with my regular wheeze, Of persuading mama someone knocked at the door, Then addressed with a smile, sweet, minty green peas, A different strategy needed at school, I utilised friend Betty's plaits, I found dinner ladies were easy to fool, Let me off when I said they had dipped in my sprouts, Now peas don't just taste nice, they've no leaves or stalks, You can count them and stab them, arrange them in threes, And they don't stink the house out for several weeks, So do not ruin Christmas with sprouts, serve us peas.
