Oh, how my miniature tree sits upon
My plate in a sense of triumph over
The other foods I was reluctant to grab.
What a dynamic duo we have become,
Together we wrestle with hunger's persistent attack, without
Even breaking a mere sweat.
You are a villain compared to
The Apples,
Mangoes,
Strawberries,
Melons,
Grapes
And pineapples.
Your kind is left untouched at dinner parties
And uneaten at salad bars.
They look upon your bushy green hair and
As if it was a natural reaction, you receive the
Same face as lemons do.
