Rocked violently since the cord was cut
Banana boat refugee
Your gag reflex is stronger than most.
And fast-forward now, swinging
In the door with the Minute Maid
And tied-off bags of peas.
I'm almost inclined to
Test your seemingly limitless
Toleration by giving you the bad news first—
But instead, I impart you this:
Earlier, while having lunch down the street
With the blender, he leaned toward me coyly,
Confiding he has been undergoing
Renal dialysis treatment.
Needless to say, his potassium
Intake has been brought to an abrupt halt.
Now, for you--relatively speaking-- this is all
Well and good, but by the same token,
I also have some bad news--
In part, this is also a confession, and
I would apologize more emphatically
Right off the bat
Had I less faith in the mellowness
Of your nature,
And the thickness
Of your skin.
Well here goes:
I have bought yet another bunch of bananas--
I know, I didn't even need them. See
Look over my shoulder--
Pretend you are looking somewhere else.
Do you see them? The yellow-green bunch
Beside the others which--oh!
They've begun to speckle--
We've so little time.
Ah, why did I even buy more?
Maybe I had seen another patron at the supermarket
Doing the same and I simply imitated
(Monkey see, monkey do, you know).
I'll admit, I do have a slight problem—
All right, fine, it's an epidemic—
It is you and not me who must pay the ultimate price.
I'm sorry dear friend,
I have so enjoyed our little chats.
But the time has come for you to make your
Will it be split with ice cream or
Fondued with sprinkles?
Ah yes, I thought you would choose the latter--
More reserved, but with a hint of flair.
Blackened Freezer Banana,
We pass this way but once,
And despite my profound desire for your return,
I shall use your strong stomach as inspiration
For keeping you down.
