November 2010 Poem A Day Challenge - Day 11

Here is today's prompt from Poetic Asides:
For today's prompt, take the phrase "No One Wants (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles include: "No One Wants to Tell the Truth," "No One Wants to Save Their Money," "No One Wants to Write a Sestina," etc. I hope everyone is ready to write a poem today!
These title poems are not my favorites. So I didn't expect much to come of it. I had to cast around a bit and hope something came to mind.

Something did. Rutabagas.

You heard me, rutabagas. My poem ended up being "No One Wants Rutabagas." Honest, that was what I came up with.

I hope tomorrow's prompt erases the horror.

No haiku, and no tanka today.

Rutabagas are not politically correct.
When was the last time you ate one?

Rutabagas don't care if they are PC. And I had some in a stew about 6 months ago. You?
