"Reality is a lovely place - but I wouldn't wanna live there." - Owl City

Few times before have I delved such depths,
Than with a citrus cigarette.

The dry air was filled with Mandarin smoke,
I wasn't even surprised when the Dandelion spoke.

The rainman and I traded faces,
The sun was a Clementine,
But in all the wrong places.

Sing it again, Flower Child,
of our fruity fallacy,
as we slip back in the garden
of citrus dreams.

A poem about a unique, produce-inspired persective.

This is not a limerick, but I liked it. You should tell me what this is about, because I want to know the story behind it.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Intriguing poem!
