Organic Veg

Don’t panic, don’t panic, our veg is organic;

It’s natural as natural can be.

It’s herbicide, pesticide, germicide, wormicide,

Bugicide, slugicide free!

Have a beetle or two in your butternut stew,

Or how about centipede cheese?

And woodlice are nice if they’re done with fried rice,

Dished up with a serving of peas.

A pie must be tried with a spider inside

(The one from our curly green kale),

And beetroot is never so sweet or complete

Unless there’s a slug or a snail.

Don’t panic, don’t panic, our veg is organic!

A bug is so good; you must try it.

But just in case everyone wants one as well,

Do you think you could kindly keep quiet?

  1. Ha! Love it, Elli 🙂 I have been harbouring intentions to knock up a few little illustrations inspired by your wonderful wordsmithery – I think this one (amongst many) absolutely demands it! 😉 x
