So mushy and green just another legume
You have to deskin it with a knife and then with a spoon?!
Alikend to double denim, we never thought it would return to fashion,
However all the millennials consume it with such zest, such a passion.
Paired with a bacon and a poached egg or a freshly tossed salad
This isn’t an ode to this vegetable, it’s more like a ballad.
Traditionally served as a light bite, this versatile green can be found at breakfast lunch or even dinner,
It’s texture is far too delicate to find itself in a salad spinner
Season with pepper, maybe a sprinkle of salt,
Say that it’s smashed and the 20 somethings will bolt
It can’t be that expensive, how much do you say?
And yet they fork it out and constantly pay.
If your gram is lacking, a pic of this is surely the winner,
It adds a certain je ne sais quoi to your dull and boring dinner
Nothing rhymes with this product, it’s an aloof tasty treat
Made fashionable by the most pretentious humans that you ever did meet
This poor little veg just wants to make it in this space
However the little avocado never knew his notoriety would accelerate at this ridiculous pace
I pull on my back pack, tick glitter off my list
Look at my pals, this is a weekend not to be missed
Stumble over my wellies, feel the first blister form
Don’t care about the pain, for this experience I was born
Past the gates and security, we amble in
A couple of baggys unnoticed in our peanut butter tin
Look at the map, set up camp here
Kick off our tents and sip the first fresh cold beer
Feel the sun beating down on our faces
This is one of my favourite places
Yesterday’s socks and Fridays hair
COME ON i here them shout, they're playing over THERE
Rush into the crowd, push through to the front
A pint of piss thrown over me, oi stop that you…!
Mosh pit breaks out, we are in the thick of it
Manage to scramble out, with my cigarette still lit
Night creeps in, lights flood from food vans help us see
Dropped a pill with the girls maybe two maybe three
Feel us all floating on a psychedelic trip
Omg did you see that boy he is so fit
Grab the poor lad and we dance all through the night
Now this night begins to take flight
However one last question hangs on my mind..
Hey baby where do you wanna go?
Your tent or mine?
Eat your food, smile, speak when spoken too
Don’t be argumentative, or have too many ideas that are new
Be polite, gracious, mind ya Ps and Qs
Remember your check list of don’t and do’s
Push yourself and cultivate your talent
Execute everything with poise and balance
When you achieve make sure you are humble
For expressing yourself too much, will be a stumble
When people tell you you have excelled and done well
Act shocked, apologetic even
Keep them under your spell
No wonder we reach our 20s and our self esteem is still low
No wonder I stopped trying before I’ve had a go
Statistically, boys are more likely to apply for jobs they are unqualified for
And even if girls have the right credentials,
They will still choose not to open that door
I’ve heard people say ‘she has such talent and the best thing about it is that she doesn’t know’
God if I ever hear that - I will point out that it’s not a compliment it’s a blow
Shout about your achievements, your growth and your learning
Leave your audience shocked, appalled even, and always leave them yearning
We shouldn’t be taught to keep our ideas quiet
We need to foster them, scream out loud. And make a bloody big riot.
