BOOK: What I Do With Vegetable Glue

didn't eat sprouts,

Now I've no special glue

No goodness inside me,

Like other kids do.

hile others are playing,

I can't even cough.

If I sneeze or I burp,

Then something falls off.


ops, pardon me

I've made a rude sound.

My bottom's dropped off

And is now…

…on the ground.


ow here is my granny

To give me some more.

She's looking quite good

For a hundred and four.

he'd like you to know

Why she's so fit and able.

She ate all her greens

Before leaving the table.


he ate all her greens

And I hope you do too,


you'll never need…

            … any vegetable glue.
