What are you? - a poem

Banana Soliloquy

What are you?


Your color is yellow

My daughter loves to eat you

What are you?


She needs to supply

The missing words

But finds it hard to do


I told her you eat it daily

Yet her mind is a melee

And scratch her head in perplexity


Oh, banana, banana

She forgot the name

In her native tongue


Thus, she receives a reprimand

I find it hilarious in the long run,

And make an ode, woe be gone …


This thought pops up to me when I introduce her the word "saging" in our dialect. I find it funny that she finds it hard to answer in which it is her favorite food.

      Fun poem! :)

      Bananas are yummy, I'm more of an apple. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Kind of. I like the color and crunch.
