You Are What Ya Eat

image by Klaus Enrique Gerdes

Poor old Igbad Mohamed Kazoo
fell in love with the witch doctor
that lived in hut two

He was warned to watch out by the tribe
but Igbad was in love
 and you know love is blind

So one day he was out picking grapes
he lost track of time
and missed thier big date

That was it for the witch doctor Shameen
she did her voo doo spell
and said" YOU ARE WHAT YA EAT!!"

This poem is inspired by my dear friend Stafford who is always making me laugh and smile.  Thank you Stafford this one is for you. :-)

  11. Thanks for the mention but this time I bow to the genius of this line from Berowne: "You are what you eat!
    Yes, but with this prompt, we eat what you are!"
