Some more Ogden Nash on food.
A gourmet challenged me to eat
A tiny bit of rattlesnake meat,
Remarking, "Don't look horror stricken,
You'll find it tastes a lot like chicken."
Now chicken I cannot eat.
Because it tastes like rattlesnake meat
The hardest food upon the planet
Is easily the ripe pomegranite.
I'm halfway through the puzzle game
Of guessing how it got it's name.
The pome part turns my cowlick hoary,
The granite part is self-explanatory.
