Grandma's Pickles



When I eat Grandma’s pickles,
They make me scrunch my nose.
They make me flap my eyelids.
They make me curl my toes.

When I eat Grandma’s pickles,
My ears turn fiery red,
And drops of perspiration
Start dripping from my head.

When I eat Grandma’s pickles,
I fall down on the floor,
And then I say through puckered lips,
“Cn I pls hv sm mr?”
