Before you judge the title of this post & think of nations-
And about their carefully planned & executed food operations,
Let me confide that the tale that I am about to narrate here-
Relates to children, whose eating-tantrums cause fear!
One evening, when the kids of different ages, shapes & sizes,
Decided that they would not eat dinner, there were surprises!
Despite the tasty fare & their moms at their coaxing best,
The not-willing-to-eat-behaviour of the kids was a tough test!
Before moms could lose their temper, Granny came to the rescue,
From her magical box of stories, she shared one that was new!
Enthralled as always, the kids ate the food without any fuss!
Even now forever ready to board & journey in Granny's story-bus!
We remember those interesting lessons even across the seas...
This is a real story set in my Granny's home when we were small,
Vacations were fun & we enjoyed moments & memories big & small.
