Dinner Time Blues

by Puzzle

Dinner time is never fun!
At 5pm I wanna run!

Far away from the dinner table.
What mom serves, I won't be able.

To put on my fork, chew and swallow.
A heaving sound will surely follow!

Disgusting food is all mom makes,
from chilli mac to salmon cakes!

Roasted chicken, boiled peas,
this food gives me anxiety!

Dinner shouldn't be a worry,
with food that may have once been furry!

Just fix something simple please! Like chicken nuggets or Mac and cheese!
