I Hate Tomatoes

I hate tomatoes, both yellow and red.

If I got them at school, I would give them to Fred.

I like them in ketchup; I like them in soup,

But plain old tomatoes? I rather eat poop.

My parents, they like them; my brother does, too.

Instead of tomatoes, I’d rather eat glue.


I originally wrote this in the fourth grade, circa 1971-72. My teacher made me change the word “poop” to “goop.” I’ve changed it back.
