School's Food

Yuck! Gross! I won't eat that
This food looks like a run over rat
It's green and gross, kind of icky,
It smells like a sewer and is really sticky
Nasty meat cooked half-way through
I think my face is turning blue
I think this bread is twelve years old.
The fries aren't cooked, they're still cold!

I thought that only in India there are complaints about the food served to children in Govt.schools.Now I find that it is also a problem in other countries.School authorities and State administration should take note that healthy food is served to children who are in their growing stages.Moreover Parents should also take note that they should not pamper their children too much as pampered children find it hard to adjust outside their home environment.
This is a good pitch for home cooked good healthy simple food...well written
If it is real, there can't be anything worse. Great poem.
the most poetical comlaint in the canteen!
