Mom why do I have to eat Squash?

I’d rather go out and play lacrosse or even get a good game of toss.

I’d even sit in the bath and wash.

 Mom why do we eat squash!

I’d rather get bit by a wasp or brush my teeth and THIS TIME use mouthwash.

If I don’t have to eat squash I will even give our car a good ol’ wash.

But only if I don’t have to eat this squash.

Before I could get up from the table to go for a walk,

my dad put down his newspaper and I could tell this was not going to be good talk.

“First of all you can’t play lacrosse or catch a play to toss.

And as far as being bit by a wasp,

be my guest I have some medicine on top of my desk.

Don’t talk to us about brushing your teeth.

I still see the meat that you ate from last week.

Finally I already washed the car but you can add a week of cutting the yard.

Now with that being said, I hope you know that you just lost.

So turn back around and eat your squash.
