      Poetry Submission: Hearty Appetite - Mother to Avrumie

      Hearty Appetite
      by Judith Mesch

      One day I said to young Avrumie
      Of all the things that you call Yummy
      Which would you wish most in your Tummy?
      Avrumie pondered, eating Gummies
      There’s not so much I think is Crummy
      Just about anything suits my Tummy
      A Pie
      A Cake
      Some chicken cutlets
      A steak
      Three eggs
      A bowl of nutlets
      A slice or two of cheesy Pizza
      Or if I’m fleishig, I eat Meatsa
      But tell me please,
      I asked the youngster
      There must be a favourite amongster
      A food or snack
      that’s so delicious
      You’d choose it first of many dishes
      Avrumie was not that ambitious
      Not so, he said and shook his Kepple
      I eat whatever’s in the Tepple
      I like what’s right in front of me
      I like the food that I can see
      I start with food that’s on the table
      And eat as long as I am able
      I always eat from left to right
      I eat until my pants get tight
      Which isn’t until late at night

      Although not what his mother wishes
      It seemed haphazardly nutritious
      I wished him well and washed the dishes
