If I happen to offend
My mistake Iíll strive to mend
This is all I ask of you:

Please be nice and do not sue! "Green Eggs And Ham" I did not write, Iím not due a copyright (That belongs to Dr. Suess), Any profit I refuse.Now that I have had my say, I hope you all have a nice day.

Authorís note: I hope you have as much fun reading this as I did writing it! Please keep in mind that I am not the best at rhyming or at any poetry, for that matter, so if you find this attempt at humor horrendous, my profound apologies.

This was meant for the purpose of FUN ONLY!! Please send any and all feedback !!

Also, this parody was inspired by the Voyager episode "Day Of Honor" (which I still havenít seen!) written by Jeri Taylor, and also the episode novelization of "Day Of Honor" by Michael Jan Friedman. (Which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed!)

Gagh and Blood Pie (a parody of "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Suess)
by JoAnna Walsvik

Neelix:

I am Neelix!
Neelix am I!
Will you try gagh and blood pie?
Will you, will you, will you try?

BíElanna:
I am Neelix?
Neelix am I?
I think your mind has gone awry. I will not try gagh and blood pie, I will not try it, Neelix-am-I.

Neelix:
Will you try them in the Mess?
Will you try them in a dress?
Maybe when on Deck 11?
Or while flying at Warp 7?

BíElanna:
I will not try them in the Mess, I will not try them in a dress.
Not when Iím on Deck 11,
or when flying at Warp 7.
I do not like gagh and blood pie, I do not like them, Neelix-am-I.

Neelix:
Will you try them at Sandrineís?
Or when youíre in Engineering?
When served with leola root?
Or wearing in EVA suit?

BíElanna:
I will not try them at Sandrineís, Or when Iím in Engineering.
Not served with leola root,
Or wearing an EVA suit.
I do not like gagh and blood pie, I do not like them, Neelix-am-I.

Neelix:
Will you try them late at night?
Will you try them by starlight?
Will you try them on a shift?
Or waiting for a turbolift?

BíElanna:
I will not try them late at night, I will not try them by starlight.
Now while I am on a shift, Not waiting for a turbolift.
I do not like gagh and blood pie!
I do not like them, Neelix-am-I!

Neelix:
Gagh and blood pie are yummy treats!
Better then the finest sweets.
Eaten by brave Klingons all, To help them grow up strong and tall They are delicious;
I do not lie Now will you, will you, will you try?

BíElanna:
Neelix, you are very annoying!
I think that you are merely toying.
If I nibble from this tray,
will you finally GO AWAY?!

Neelix:
Just one bite, thatís all I ask.
A harmless and a simple task
Just eat some of gagh and blood pie
Please, will you, will you, will you try?!

BíElanna:
Just one bite is all Iíll take
Only one, make no mistake
Then youíll stop this senseless talk
Or Iíll push you through an airlock! (You see, Klingons are not very nice.)
And if Iíve told you once, Iíve told you twice. I do not like gagh and blood pie, I do not like them, Neelix-am-I.

Neelix:
Open up and take a bite
Your mouth will quiver in delight
With happiness you soon will sigh,
Could you, would you, will you try?

BíElanna:
Their smell is bad, their look is worse (I must be underneath a curse!)
Iíll eat gagh and blood pie today, Just to make you go away!
I know exactly whatís in store...
But hey! Hey! And hey once more!

Neelix:
What? What? What can it be?
A weird and strange anomaly?
A computer glitch? A catastrophe?
What? What? Oh, what can it be?

BíElanna:
They are good! They are a treat!
Gagh and blood pie are good to eat! I will eat them in the Mess, I will eat them in a dress!
Iíll eat them while on Deck 11, Iíll eat them flying at Warp 7! I will eat them at Sandrineís, Or while in Engineering!
Iíll eat them with leola root, Or while in an EVA suit!
I will eat them late at night, I will eat them by starlight! I will eat them on a shift, Or when waiting for a turbolift! I really like gagh and blood pie, I really like them, Neelix-am-I!

Neelix:
You see! You see! I told you so!
Food is something that I know!
I knew youíd like gagh and blood pie!
All you had to do was try!

BíElanna:
The moral of this little tale Is one that will never fail If at supper or at dinnertime
Please remember our small rhyme
Donít refuse food that you hate For it could be a taste thatís great!
Donít let good food pass you by.

All you have to do...is try!
