The Pickle Poem

The Pickle

I love those crunchy pickles

That grow from the pickle bean

They are the greenest pickles

That I have ever seen

I like them with my pancakes

I like them with my lunch

A party isn't proper

Without pickles in the punch

I like them sweet and tangy

Or puckerfied with dill

I dream of Summer barbecues

With pickles on the grill

I wear those gherkin fashions

I love that kosher style

I ride my motorpickle

Through the garden with a smile

When my life is over

And I cash the wooden nickel

I won't give up the ghost

Until I have just one more...pickle

I hope this "pickle poem" made you smile, it makes canning all those pickles worth it! Have a great day!
