There are certain foods I like to eat,
And tasting them is such a treat.
People would find them quite gross,
Because they are the foods they dislike most.
Leftover spaghetti is so nice,
When it's been reheated more than twice.
Chunky chicken spread makes me smile,
Especially when it's been lying around for awhile.
Raw ground beef is so good,
I don't think of what's in it even though I should.
Cream of celery soup, raw and in the can,
Is one of the better tasting, when it's cold,
foods that people don't understand.
Like pizza from five nights before,
It makes me feel alive once more.
Topped with pepperoni, sausage, green peppers and cheese.
It's one of the many foods I can eat as I please.
Now that I'm done with this poem, please understand,
I'm not as disgusting as you think I am.
I am only trying to say as nicely as I can,
The jelly in Spam tastes better than the ham.
