As a kid I hated it,
I remember how innovative we were at feigning the big servings we took of it,
Yes, it wasn’t only I who loathed it,
All my friends equally despised it,

Now I wonder why I did dislike it so much,
Because now I think it’s quite delicious as such,
Both my daughter and I simply relish it,
To think that I once detested it,

Is this to do with age I wonder,
But then my teen girl too with relish her bowl does plunder,
It must be to do with the rebel in me,
That in those days from the porridge bowl I wanted to flee!
