Asparagus Day? Why? (Limerick)

Asparagus doesn’t appeal to me,
And it guts what might be a good meal to me.
Brussels sprouts can be yummy.
With brocc’li I’m chummy.
But asparagus spears are “no deal” to me.

May 24 is Asparagus Day.

    Asparagus, weird? Let me see…
    Its quirkiest feature must be
    Quite like my espresso
    But more (and not less) so
    It causes strange smells when I pee!

    In high season, the day of its fête,
    Serve it buttered, alone on a plate.
    From the feast of St. George
    You may happily gorge,
    Till midsummer, and then it’s too late.
