The parsnip and the artichoke
Are not for me. And not for me
The turnip, crook'd neck squash,
And gassy kohlrabi.
The cabbage and the lowly leek
I leave alone. I leave alone
The soup greens, white radishes,
And peppers in the minstrone.
But spinach (creamed), corn-on-the--cob
Is fit for kings. And fit for kings
The potato, rice wild or tame
And all such fattening things!
