When faced (as lad) with Brussels sprouts
On dinner plate, I had my doubts.
But came a parent’s standard stand:
“Some hungry child in distant land
Would love that Brussels sprout to eat.”
(A line of guilt that’s tough to beat.)
To which I said (ideas brewin’):
“Let’s pack it up and send it to ’em!”
