Herbie Herb & The Plant-its

Introducing Herbie Herb & the Plant-its…
they’re out of this world!
I’m Herbie Herb,
And, these are the plant-its,
We love to hoe,
And, sow,
So… without further ado,
We welcome you, again,
To our lil’ Garden Of Edan.
Herbie Herb?
Sound absurd?
I wonder if anyone,
Gets it?
Ahh, well…
We’ve already begun,
Since man’s first day,
Under our same sun,
There’s been a quest,
To conquer the taste test,
Everyone tries.
Pray tell,
Have [...]

Scarborough Fair

traditional folk song
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
(a hill in the deep forest green)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
(tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown)
Without no seams nor needle work,
(blankets and bedclothes the [...]

Petroselinum Crispum
This Greek was no geek,
Spilling his blood,
For our food.
Keep the forerunner of death…
While you freshen your breath,
In an instant.
Put flatulence out of existence!
Good for your digestive system,
And, it’ll clear your skin,
Calm your nerves and help emotion,
With lots of vitamin A and C,
It’s easy to see,
Why it helps me.
Is good for my cranium,
Minerals, iron [...]

Vegan Out

I’m not very good at vegin’,
My mind works best,
When put to the test.
I’m not very good at vegan,
My body works best,
When I digest –
Of God’s creations,
And vegetable.
You must have meat,
To be complete,
Without the B12 vitamin,
I can’t say, “I am.”
My mind will go numb,
Making me dumb,
My neurological system,
Will fall victim,
I won’t be able to say,
“I am.”
Vegan [...]

You Are What You Eat

You are what you eat,
Drink and breathe,
An all natural,
Chemical diet,
Ain’t that a riot?
Most of me,
Is made of oxygen?
Say that again,
So, there…
I guess I really am,
Filled with hot air.
For a treat,
How about some carbon?
Would you believe,
That we all,
Have been?
There’s hydrogen,
And, nitrogen,
Um… [...]

The USDA originally had a hand in developing the cartoon concept of Popeye. Here is what they have to say:
Popeye and Spinach: Remember Popeye cartoons which were designed to get children to eat spinach? Spinach is a great vegetable that is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, calcium, and iron. Unfortunately, when Popeye [...]

Is one of the most nutritious,
It’s really good for us.
Given our health variables,
Would you fetch,
Some more spinach?
2,000 years ago,
Iranians knew how to grow,
And, did you know,
It went on to become,
The Arabs “Prince Of Vegetables”?
It makes me strong and able,
So, how come,
We don’t fetch,
Some more spinach?
It’s stuffed with beta-carotene,
And, given a chance,
On second glance,
It just might,
Give [...]

Mustard’s Final Stand

I’ve been thinking hard,
About mustard,
And, how I’ve been a retard…
Thinking only to squirt,
On dog or burger.
But, thinking further…
It’s a plant,
Growing in the dirt.
I didn’t see,
More vitamin C,
Than an orange.
Huge amounts,
Where it counts,
Of A,
B… iron, phosphorous,
And, calcium,
What do you say,
More for both of us?
(I know I am.)
The Greeks did speak,
And, the Bible did tell,
How it helps [...]
