NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day Six
And back on track… With a poem about tomatoes. Of course. Inspired by the prompt to look at heirloom / heritage veg varieties. It’s true you’re spoilt for choice!
Warning: Contains exaggerations.
Roll up! Roll up! Come and see
the magnificent, majestic “mortgage lifter” –
the tomato which will make all the difference,
changing your life in the flick
of a well-aimed ketchup bottle.
Say goodbye to debts and hello to yachts,
so long to Smart Price and bonjour to the Ritz –
this is how you will live.
So come on down and take your chance
on the tomato, that can make all your dreams come true.
Tomato’s ability to lift mortgage will depend on size of mortgage.
Tomato’s ability to make dreams come true will depend on size of dreams.
Dinner at the Ritz may be limited to one tomato. Raw.
