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.
