F the greens


To improve my diet, I cooked some greens. 

Bok chow in the wok, it tasted unreal. 

But I got a piece caught in my throat.

Home alone, it wasn't a joke. 

I couldn't breathe in, couldn't hack it out. 

If anyone was around, I couldn't even shout.

I thought to myself, what a strange way to go!

Down on my knees, fingers down my throat.

Finally, hooked the culprit. 

I needed a beer, and a smoke. 

So meat and bread, that with do me.

And for my health, 

I say, fuck the greens.

    Me - long term vegetarian - never happened. Not a bad way to go though, after the first five minutes.......

      Interesting that you say that, I was scared at first, but then thought, so this is it.

      This is great!
      Reminds me of a close call I had myself😆
      Except mine was natural peanut butter getting lodged in my throat.... rough.. to say the least.
      It's like 'you're trying to do the right thing.. and your body betrays you'.
      at least that's how I felt.. ha
      Thanks for sharing!

      🪶Happy writing
