Inverted Haikus on the Laying Geese of Christmas

I've been told by my father
That, Dickens aside,
Geese are very fatty birds.

So, lay what eggs you care to,
I shan't be eating,
Not from one nor six of ye.

You won’t eat goose eggs and jam?
Won’t eat them along side spam?
Won’t eat them with a grand slam?
Won’t eat them even for Uncle Sam?

Would you eat them with a fork?
Would you try them along side pork?
Would you order them in New York
Not even if a gift from Mork?

So when then would you?
Will you eat them in chair?
Will you share them with a bear?
I think your reluctance totally unfair!

Goose jam and eggs?
Have mercy, I begs.
Don't make me eat
Lest I vomit the treat.
