    Juicy Fruit



     

    Tired of reading magazines?

    Tangerines, eat tangerines.

    I think of all those lost love scenes

    Whenever I suck tangerines.

     

    Suck that sweet slow dripping juice

    While your heart’s out on the loose

    Hangman waits to snug that noose

    Lime’s a crime I must adduce.

     

    How the orange slants it’s favor

    With populist opinion flavor

    Years since there was any hint of waver

    Clementines were just meant to savor.

     

    Once upon a grapefuit squirt

    I rubbed my eye because it hurt

    When wetness left a see-thru shirt

    But, oh what fun it was to flirt!

     

    Remnant citrus, don’t forsake

    Citreon rind is there to take

    So take that taste and with it make

    Your favorite slice of Christmas cake.

    So all this time, all the tangerine community needed was a good publicist ha ha. Oh, the wasted generations : D

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
