PINEAPPLE

Prickly pineapple, you are a deceiver but a gem.
Hard exterior belies that sweet yellow flesh.
Messy head shoots up from soil's stems
tantalizing mesmerizing us with your sweet relish.

You are the symbol of peaceful serenity.
Carved on homestead entrances and bed frames
since olden times, your visage a sign of hospitality
as you smile at weary guests in your warm embrace.

Your fleshy chunks, an adornment to ham and bacon.
Shrimp and pineapple an Asian delight.
With ice cream, kids sensational sweet succulent haven.
Vitamins galore in your goodness for a healthy heart and clear sight.

I will dance a tango with you and mango, as apple plays a sweet lyric.
Banana will beat the drums so we can groove to the midnight beat.
Plum will sing a sonnet as she serenades strawberry's dazzling magic.
Celebration ends as we bathe in warm fruity juices in ecstacy and heat.




I am a layman.

In Jewish tradition, the "forbidden fruit" is identified as the fig. There's a minority opinion that it's the pomegranate.

This "golden fruit" verse makes me hungry.

One thing I was told on a tour of a pineapple plantation in Hawaii was that the bromelain enzyme that breaks down proteins would leak on the fingers and eat away the finger prints of the people employed to pick them.

I do not know if this is true or just a story for tourists though.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

I've no idea if this is true, either. But if it were, the pineapple plantations would probably be full of criminals from the whole world eager to help. Whistle
