I Still Don't Like Asparagus

by Barry Louis Polisar

As I get older I'm beginning to see
Changes that are happening to me;
I'm liking things I never used to like
Like yogurt, squash and riding my bike.
I like to sit with girls; I like to ride the bus,
But I still don't like asparagus.
I still don't like asparagus.

I like prunes and broccoli,
Mushrooms and celery;
Finally, I've learned to love rain,
Bok Choy, quiche, and chicken chow mein.
I think the theater is fabulous,
But I still don't like asparagus.
I still don't like asparagus.

I like to go to bed instead of staying up at night,
I used to be closed minded now I'm neither left or right.
I like to eat arugula, eggplant, and artichokes.
I like oatmeal, okra, and egg yolks.
I like my little sister and I know I must
Learn to like.....asparagus.
I'll never ever like asparagus.
