Ogden Nash of food.
Don't agree with him but love his rhymes.
The parsnip, children, I repeat
is simply an anemic beet.
Some people call the parsnip edible,
Myself, I find this claim incredible.
What a pity that aspic
Doesn't rhyme with elastic,
Because, Gee Whiz
Develops the jaw
But celery stewed.
Is more quickly chewed.
