    I love brussels sprouts
    They remind me of old times
    I hear The Kings of Leon

    I take the green orb
    Study it, examine it-
    It's a piece of shit

    Brussels sprout, Brussels sprout!
    Throw the nasty rascal out.
    Give us pizza, give us meat.
    Give us anything that's sweet.

    In the evening how I hate
    To see you lying on my plate.
    You are green and round and wide,
    Which makes you very hard to hide.

    And so, with milk, I wash you down.
    Even then I gag and frown.
    Though you're good for me, no doubt.
    A pox upon thee, Brussels sprout.

    Ode to B.S.

    The Brussel sprouts grow
    If you feed one to Tentoze
    Then up he will throw.

    “We kids feared many things in those days - werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School - but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts.”

    Brussels Sprout on plate
    The dinner is long over
    Alone, they remain

    But Not For Sprouts (where's the Pepto Bismol?):

    They're writing songs of sprouts, but not for me. A asparagus’ above, but not for me

    With leaves to lead the way, I found more sprouts of green, than any belgian plate could guarantee. I was a fool to eat and got this way, ah ho alas, and also whatapain

    And though I can't dismiss that flavor hard to miss, I guess she's indigested me

    It all began so well but what a breath, this is a time a fella needs Colgate. If every cauliflower ends with a cabbage & sprouts, and there's no spr(out)s for me

    the sprout is green
    like my osciliscope
    the color of money

    As green as the water which drips from my trouser snake
    I'd prefer to eat a hot-buttered cheesesteak
    I hate sprouts.
