My mom’s a vegetarian.
She never touches meat.
My father is a carnivore.
It’s all he’ll ever eat.

My brother won’t eat vegetables.
My sister won’t eat fish.
The baby dumps her food out
and attempts to eat the dish.

With me, there’s something different
in every lunch I bring.
Yes, I’m a cafeterian
and I’ll eat anything!
