Food Poetry

More Food Poetry

I wanted to write some more food poetry to get more diverse styles on here.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a bunch of poems based on food, so I thought why not?  It’s been a while since I have flexed my more creative side on this site.


Is it keen-wah, kwin-o-wah?
Who the Hell know-wah?
An ancient grain, whole grain.
Tiny circle pellets, don’t drain.

Yellow sour citrus fruit
Makes salmon better to boot
We all know that vitamin C
Is really good for me

On Learning Metabolic Pathways

Coming in a yellow bunch
Go ahead and pack in a lunch
High in potassium
Makes you say “yum.”


Small, blue and round.
Spring through summer can be found.
Eat them raw, in a salad or pie.
Vitamin C to help you not die.


Can be filled with a bunch of green
Can be filled with a bunch of fruit
Try and make sure the calories are lean
Tasty dish, and nutrient dense to boot


Middle meal of the day
Can be large or small
or even not at all
I like to eat it anyway


The Internet Itself
A lot of garbage floating in the void
Who can you trust for info?
I am incredibly annoyed
My side, your side, their side, we don’t know
