The Trouble With Omnivores

The Trouble with omnivores is
they’re unthinkingly voracious–
It’s a subject on which, I admit,
I wax rather loquacious.

I’m not advocating carnivoes
like Tyrannosaur Ferocious,
or pure herbivoric tendencies–
to be too bovine is atrocious.

But on behalf of picky eaters,
I ask you to be cautious
and be aware some recipes
are less edible than nauseous.

A simple Caesar salad, say,
which is properly herbaceous
is ruined by a lobster tail
or other specks cretaceous.

Tomatoes, melons, sausages
produce dread over elation–
Which is why I pack the peanut butter
for every long vacation.
