Rough and Ready Rutabagas

    Rutabaga, rough and ready

    Rough and ready Rutabaga

    no matter what you chant,

    greeted through the ages

    by either rave or rant.

    Some say bitter, others sweet

    arguing at every meal,

    on only one thing they agree,

    the ’baga has no sex appeal.

    And though its uses are diverse

    whether diced or chopped or raw,

    whether boiled or fried or roasted,

    votes are either “ahh” or “blah“.

    But the rough and ready ’baga

    stands up to each rebuke

    asking only that you try them

    even if you puke!
