Fruitless Mystery

There is no fruit so mysterious

As one that drives you to delirium

Expensive whether little or big

I have yet to know the trick

It should feel firm and not too soft

Otherwise it may be “off”

It entices with its flavor

And when it’s ripe, it’s yours to savor

It likes to appear forbidden

Keeping every delight hidden

Until you give it a slight feel

Think it’s ripe and time to peel

You start to drool, reveal each inch

The dark green off, teeth start to clench

The light green you looked forward to

Is now mostly black in hue

Who knows the secret of this fruit

That hides behind the dark green suit?
