I was curious what definitions I would find for the term “junk food” and of course it varied depending on the author’s interpretation. Here is one definition I found interesting; Food that tastes good but is high in calories having little nutritional value. I think someone forgot to tell the little girl in this poem that the junk food she was being forced fed tasted good!

What’s your rhythm and what’s your crime?
Did your grandmother feed you brine?
If she did, was she fully aware…?
Of that salty pickling fare?

“Cookies and cakes eaten under the Oaks would be far better than the family jokes!”

What’s your rhythm and what’s your crime?
Did your brother feed you a lemon- lime?
If he did, I’ll bet you a dime...
He was eating something yummy and sublime!

“Cookies and cakes eaten under the Oaks would be far better than the family jokes!”

What’s your rhythm and what’s your crime?
Did your sister cover you with sticky slime?
If she did; should you let her know…?
Her sneaky little joke went up in white smoke?


“Cookies and cakes eaten under the Oaks would be far better than the family jokes!”

What’s your rhythm and what’s YOUR crime?
Is it enemy PAYBACK time?
If it is… are “THEY” fully aware…?
It’s not very smart to cross a hungry grizzly bear!

“Cookies and cakes eaten under the Oaks would be far better than the family jokes!”

This is a lot of fun. "What's your rythm and what's your crime?" Great stuff. That said, I must confess, I think this article was too short. You have a flair for fine rhymes. I want more.

You have a great sense of humor. I almost don't think you need the opening paragraph. It made me think that you were going to quote someone else's poem. The piece you wrote is full of divine lines and I remember my siblings insisting that cheese puffs were dead caterpillars and jello is made from horse hooves. Those familial family practical jokes aren't nearly as good as cookies and cake eaten under the Oaks. :)
