"Look at us," the Apples said,
To Bananas ripe and fruity.
"We start off green and end up red,
That is our only duty."
The Bananas they did not reply
Merely chuckling to the Pineapple
Who furrowed its brow and asked, "Now why
Should any of us give a crabapple?"
The Squash did sternly shake its head
And nudged awake the Broccoli
Who snored so as to wake the dead
Nearly frightening the Kiwi.
The Carrots strove to do their best
To ease the conversation
But then the Salad walked around undressed
To everyone's consternation.
The Mango jumped on Zucchini's head
Which made him rather snooty
The Mushrooms simply went to bed
And dreamt of Kale, the cutie.
I can't take credit for this one--this was all M's brainchild! And yes, such a poem does make me swoon! :)
