Poetry by Mimi: April 2022


Meatless Mondays, can you do it?
This is something you can try
Meat is not the only protein
Tofu, beans and eggs you fry
It will be good for your body
Even once a week pays off
Preparations can be easy
And it’s cheaper, lower cost

You can stuff a portabella
With diced veggies or some rice
Sprinkle cheese or spoons of pesto
Season with your favorite spice

How about a bowl of salad?
There are many leafy greens
Add a grain, some nuts and dressing
Top it with a cup of beans

I would never say “No chicken”
Or to put the steaks aside
But, squeeze in just one day without them
And you’ll feel a sense of pride
