The Case of Broccoli ~ Court Docket # 123

The Case of Broccoli ~ Court Docket # 123

A Poem by anne p. murray- LadeeAnne

A children's poem about having to eat broccoli



                        Judge Greenleaf


I think I should be allowed to take

My mom and dad to see the judge

You know, like the ones you see on TV?

Yeah, take em’ to see the judge

He’ll probably take my side, you see


Since I’m just a little kid,

I'm quite sure that he'll think

It’s wrong for them

To make me eat that funky, ole' broccoli!

Cuz, you know what?

It really does stink!


I'll tell the judge I don't want to be unfair

They just want me to grow up to be strong

I truly appreciate that they really do care


It just sits there on my plate starin’ up at me.

I think makin' me eat it is downright wrong

It’s got icky, lumpy bumps on it, so…

I rest my case, he’ll surely set me free...

Cuz', how can I something

That looks just like a tree?


To me, it sure ain't nothin' great

A hundred beady eyes of green

Sitting like a tiny woodland on my plate

Mom makes me eat it and that's just mean!


That icky, lumpy green stuff called



It's sure not my cup of tea!                      



                   Dr. Broccoli


                           memes - You gave me broccoli.

Ha! Mine used to be brussel sprouts. I plugged up my grandparents toilet with them. I would cram them into all my pockets and dump them in the toilet and flush after dinner was over. Ha! Cute poem. :)

Nice poem, kids are always fuzzy, but still cute, I just enjoyed reading this poem and was kind of visualizing it.. Last stanza added some spl spice to the whole stuff.... Good work

I'm not an extraordinary woman, simply put... I'm just a normal, ordinary one. In my private life I am gingerly cautious with the people I meet, but fearless in the words I write. Not an extrove.. more..
