Mr. Orange: A Poem

Updated on March 14, 2012


Here is a lonely fruit,


He doesn’t know he’s very cute,


His skin is tough, he rolls alone,


Expressionless but a striking tone,


On the inside, he is tangy and sweet,


But he’s layered, ‘cause there’s no one to meet,


Unlike others, he doesn’t have a cluster,


Compared to bananas and grapes, he feels lackluster,


So, he just sits here, reflecting on his fruitless life, seeing only what’s in front of him,


He wishes he could travel, but that’s impossible, an orange has no transporting limb.

      f: Thanks! It doesn't really hold a deeper meaning. It's just a little poem about an orange that is stuck on the counter.

      Voted up. Interesting; an obscure (deep?) meaning ... :)
