In celebration of the glorious fruit of summertime…
The Perfect Tomato
Red, robust, firm fruit
Waiting for the knife to slice.
The cut, juice flows free.
The Perfect BLT
Toasted, grainy white
Leafy green, bacon, mater
One more piece, savor.
Salted so simply sans skin
Sweet, seeds Better Boy.
Starving Tomato Artist Limerick
There was a tomato with a brush
Who wanted to paint his crush.
Running out of red ink,
Not making a stink,
He squashed a cherry tomato into mush.
Oh tomato! We relish in your joy of juicy delight!
How you connect the sandwich and the salad
Of every hungry human creating a meal so valid.
The fruit of the heavens! So luscious and appealing!
A fruit yes! Some say a vegetable too.
Your mouthwatering goodness deserves its own food group.
