Don’t taste very nice
If you like pastries that are fruity or sweet
They’re made with a spice
That can only entice
Goonuncles who eat with their feet
But when goonmother makes
Yucky goonberry cakes
Be a well-behaved, foul little brat
Find something that slakes
And fight your siblings for takes
Maybe next course will be roasted rat!
Translator’s notes: Goonberry cakes and pies are common dishes served during the Goon holiday of Blibberderth which is approximately the first week after spring begins. It celebrates flowers and fertility. Goonberries themselves are sour and sticky and, stereo-typically goonchildren will not eat them.
