What is it about 

A bowl of mush that makes me

Feel just so swaddled?

Cereal must sit

in its milk for five minutes 

before I will eat.


to keep teeth sprightly,
use sparingly; make many
batches of pudding. 

you're just jealous of
how well prepared i'll be when
i'm seventy-five.

Tell us how you really feel about mush. The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

Contentment on plates,<br />cornmeal mush, slathered cold butter<br />fills my hungry belly.

What, grits?<br />go ahead, smush it all over my face.<br />but wait- let me get my back flat with the table.
