Late in posting again due to family time in the evening. Day 24’s challenge was to write about a fruit, so I tried to get into the mindset of a banana. I will leave it to you to judge how successful I’ve been …
Bananas are slippery customers:
They’re the ninjas of the fruit world,
Deceptively unassuming in their virulent yellow;
Curved like old men with bent backs –
But unzip their skin and peel it off
Like a diver shedding his neoprene suit
And you’ll find the true core:
A pale, creamy fruit, packed with hidden seeds,
Bursting with potassium and rich in starch.
It’s a berry in disguise – an identity so secret
Most people have no idea of the truth.
It projects a façade of foolishness –
We say crazy people are ‘bananas’ –
But it sneakily waits on stairs or in passageways,
Just hoping to make people slip.
