A Distaste For Peanut Butter

None of my friends ever understood why I didn't like peanut butter. Apparently, it's a delicatessen. Anyway, I wrote this poem to explain my distaste for it in a humorous way. Enjoy.

I Hate Peanut Butter

These words I say without a stutter:
I hate the taste of peanut butter!
In Reese's chocolate it may stay
But keep the butter far away.
It leaves a lump inside my belly,
It's even worse when paired with jelly!
I hate its texture, hate its smell;
If I go near it, I'm unwell.
My family tells me I'm dramatic
But against PB I stay emphatic.
If you're craving butter thick,
You might as well just eat the stick,
Or wear it as a winter coat
But keep it furthest from your throat!
Last time I ate it, things went south;
My tongue got glued inside my mouth!
If you include it in my lunch,
I'll very likely throw a punch.
I'd gladly eat a Brussels sprout
But keep the peanut butter out!

Oh what fun at a time when there's a sense of so much doom and gloom. More please!
Best wishes, Ann

My 11-year-old son recited this poem at his classical school, The Classical Academy, this past month. He has peanut allergies, so it was fitting that he chose your poem to recite. He recited it in front of at least 300 people if not more. Thanks for a fun poem!
