A Pair of Potatoes Were Talking
Buy the book The Biggest Burp Ever
A pair of potatoes were talking,
discussing what might be for lunch.
One turned to the other and told him,
“I think that I might have a hunch.
As long as we stay near the kitchen
and don’t wander too far afield,
I’m sure that we’ll see what they’re serving.
We just have to keep our eyes peeled.”
