Oranges

What is it about oranges that truly is deranged?
Their scent, their peel, their zest, what makes an orange strange?
Not only a color or an acidic fruit,
The orange is beautiful like a whimsical flute.
The orange, she is perfect, there's nothing to add,
Without armor, she's pretty, especially clad.
Take a look at an orange and soon you will find,
A gorgeous, juicy object in a dangerous bind
For who would want to eat and devour Something so faultless in its ripest hour?

The author's comments:
I have always enjoyed writing, especially poetry. I find it to be the best manner in which to express myself. While writing is time consuming, I believe that it is extremely rewarding, even if the object of the piece is a common one (the orange).
