Fuss Pots!

The People's Friend Special - - FICTION - Lily Christie

There is a time in ev­ery day when I am at a loss,

I need to think what I shall cook, each child thinks they’re the boss.

Alis­tair will not eat fish, Chloe won’t eat meat, No veg­eta­bles for Emily, for Jamie only sweet.

Be­tween them all there seems to be no meal that I can make With­out some­one com­plain­ing that they only wanted cake!

At least three grumpy faces is my daily evening sight,

And there’s al­ways at least one who won’t even have a bite.

So now I have de­cided, that if I say, “Too bad!”,

They’ll soon be far too hun­gry to con­tinue with their fads!
