"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

The Benefits of Picky Eaters

Mrs. Bidds has picky kids.
She never does mistreat 'em,
She often bakes them pies and cakes
But they refuse to eat 'em.
They moan and sigh and sadly cry,
"We do not like the taste."
"Oh, no!" says she. "Well, give them to me,
So they won't go to waste."

~ Tamary Shoemaker
