Pete's Pickles

Passion for Perks

By Jody RandallPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Pete the Penguin was quite peculiar,

Preferring pickles to pies or popsicles,

Perhaps his palate was prone to the peculiar,

Peculiar pickles pleased Pete to no end.

Pete picked up a pack of pickles,

Proudly parading them through the park, People passing by were perplexed,

"Pete, why pick pickles?" they inquired.

"Plain and simple," Pete replied, "Pickles pack a powerful punch, Perfectly pleasing to my palate,

Plus, they prevent scurvy, it's a perk!"

Pete's passion for pickles was unparalleled,

Pete painted pictures of pickles on his walls, Played pickleball with his penguin pals,

Pete even dreamed of pickles in his sleep.

Please remember that if you ever see Pete the Penguin, Perusing the produce section, Picking pickles with precision, just know it's just his peculiar passion.
