Poetry Friday: Green Eggs and Ham

This week's entry comes courtesy of Dr. Seuss, and of the fascinating Wikipedia entry about the book Green Eggs and Ham. Did you know that in the U.S., green eggs used to be a term for scrambled eggs made with herbs? So Wikipedia says, anyway. Here is an excerpt from the book, taken from their post:

"I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I do not like them in a house.
I do not like them with a mouse.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am."

As a relatively picky eater, I always appreciated this book. I'm traveling for a couple of days, but I'll try to come back with some links later in the weekend. Happy Friday!

UPDATE: Here are some links to Poetry Friday entries that I ran across today (Sunday). You can find others listed at A Chair, A Fireplace, and A Tea Cozy.
