Meet Diet for Vegetarians

Red-winged dove in vegetables

Some veggies here, of kinds we love,

And in their midst, a red-winged dove –

It’s near the centre, you will see

If you should search most carefully …

Believe you have it?  Look again,

For what you find may cause you pain,

Religiously, you (to be brief)

Have latched onto a false ‘be leaf’!

    Perused your post,
    Did not believe it.
    Gave it my most,
    And saw you’d leafed it.
