“Cumquats And Wotnots” by Diane Finlay

2 Comments

Did you ever

tango with a mango

or mince with a quince

peel a lychee by the sea

or kiss a ‘blue’ berry?

 

Can you really

make rhymes with limes

or mix melons with lemons

blow GIANT raspberries

or get stuck in a strawberry jam?

 

Did you ever

scare a pear

or grapple with an apple

watch peaches on beaches

or discover plums have bums?

 

Can you really

tie cumquats with wotnots

feed grapes to apes

put a pawpaw on a seesaw

or be mean to a nectarine?

 

Did you ever

can-can with a rambutan

see grapefruits in suits

take kiwi’s to Fiji

or wonder why this rhyme began?
