The Yuckiest Sandwich

by Ellen Jackson
Take a slice of moldy bread.
Spread it thick with mud.
Add an onion ring or two,
topped with slimy crud.

Sprinkle fish food all around—
add a dried-up bug.
Smear the whole thing with the lint
you picked up off the rug.

Garnish it with coffee grounds
or hair spray from your mother.
Then wrap it up in cellophane
and give it to your brother!
