Ode to Mushrooms

You grow in Maggot’s garden,
Or under forest tree,
In deep dark caves you flourish,
And bring us to our knees,

In different shapes and sizes
You tempt us all our days,
So many different flavours,
No wonder Frodo says:

‘I’d jump the fence at Maggot’s farm,
Just to get a few,
But you be mighty careful,
Or he’ll send his dogs for you!’

Roasted with some garlic,
You’re a real tasty treat,
Just ask Merry and Pippin -
You’re all they ever eat!
