This is the parody I wrote in class, quite  a long time ago but I found it and thought it would be great to blog.

O asparagus, asparagus! Wherefore art thou asparagus?

Deny thy roots and refuse thy name!

Or, if thou wilt not, know that I will not eat you

Tis but thy name that is my digestive enemy;

Thou art thyself, though not a vegetable

What’s vegetable? It is not spicy, nor salty, nor savory, nor sweet, nor any other part belonging to a tasty food.

O, be some other name!

What’s in a name? That which we call a mother by any other name would still be as bossy

Without that title, asparagus, weed whack thy name.

    This is a good one! I never really thought about how the flavor of this vegetable really can’t be classified, now wonder so many dislike it!
