How to be a Vegetable

by Rose


To be a veggie is

quite absurd, a pretty
little oddity of life
Oh carrots and cabbage, it’s a dream

But If you’ve ever wondered
what it takes to be a veggie, for goodness’
sake, just follow these tip-tap steps
to live as they say; a ve-ge-table-s life

No need for arms or legs, you see
Or stifles of worry, sadness and grief
For they darken the colour of your red
Tomato cheeks
Green umbrella, you should stretch out to the sky instead
To catch the sunlight as you stand tall
And free

Let the raindrops kiss your leaves
Twirl and spin, let the drops fall down
No shoes or fancy jackets around for snails,
Those teeny-tiny fashion thieves
That stroll above your wiggling roots
In the coldness of a brown coat

Though, beware of those pesky bugs and
their devious shenanigans
Don’t let them define your purpose
and your in-dom-it-able
-ness. Show no fear and
shout: “I’m a veggie, hear me, and I’m
vegging all about!”

There you have it, your veggie degree
for thinking about those oddities too
So if you’re feeling a bit pe-
Cu-lair, think of all, lettuce and greens
And soon enough, a veggie you’ll be!

This poem is like a funny little story about veggies! It talks about how silly it would be to be a vegetable and gives tips on how to live like one. It's kind of like a make-believe adventure into the world of carrots and cabbage!

The poem says veggies don't need arms or legs because they can just stretch out to the sky and soak up the sunshine. And when it rains, they can let the raindrops kiss their leaves and dance around. But watch out for bugs—they can be pesky!

It's a fun poem that makes you think about veggies in a whole new way. So, if you ever feel a little bit different, just think about lettuce and greens, and you'll feel like a veggie too!

Overall a solid fun and weird poem

Hi names 22Midnight
hope your doing well, let's get into it! this review's going to be playful one hope that's okay

First Impression: yep this is totally to go with the resent theme, cool i'm interested to see what you came up with for this veggie outbreak.

*eats chicken sandwich* I'll be taking all the advise on how to become a perfect veggie for sure

But If you’ve ever wondered

*hides chicken sandwich* totally listening i'm really read for this you got to give me all the good info.

No need for arms or legs, you see
Or stifles of worry, sadness and grief
For they darken the colour of your red
Tomato cheeks


are you saying that you want us to get squishy and yucky inside or is it so that we can be just right.

Green umbrella, you should stretch out to the sky instead
To catch the sunlight as you stand tall
And free


*gets out note pad* I guess i should get outside in the sun more often, although snow doesn't make it easy

Let the raindrops kiss your leaves
Twirl and spin, let the drops fall down
No shoes or fancy jackets around for snails,
Those teeny-tiny fashion thieves
That stroll above your wiggling roots
In the coldness of a brown coat


*takes a quick bite out of chicken sandwich* yes I can taste freedom approaching me i'm ready for this commitment *hides sandwich again*

Though, beware of those pesky bugs and
their devious shenanigans
Don’t let them define your purpose
and your in-dom-it-able
-ness. Show no fear and
shout: “I’m a veggie, hear me, and I’m
vegging all about!”


Yay I feel powerful like nothing can destroy me it's all veggie wonderful right now *squishes fly coming near sandwich*

There you have it, your veggie degree
for thinking about those oddities too
So if you’re feeling a bit pe-
Cu-lair, think of all and lettuce and greens
And soon enough, a veggie you’ll be!


i've written everything down so i won't forget now let me just got print this out so I can put it on my fridge to remember everything *runs with sandwich**throws dairy away**eats chicken sandwich* all good over here don't worry.

Overall: this gave me a few good laughs and I'm happy to have read it, but getting serious for a moment, the line before the last line I think it would be better if the and before lettuce was a the instead, I feel like the follow was jumpy otherwise.

anyway that's it from me

hope you have a great dawn/dusk/midnight

See Ya
