Grapes that gush – with cotton candy?
Melons that melt – into lemonade?
This universe is more diverse
For cousins bred and heirlooms saved.
For school, I took a big red apple.
Delicious? Once, but now no more.
And then Pink Lady turned my head;
The doctor’s advice again is sure.
Get thee to a local garden –
Plant a seed, and watch it grow –
Then savor the flavor of all your efforts!
(The monocrop’s a dinosaur.)
