carrot poem

carrot poem  (  meop  torrac  )






wild in the hedges

but less on the leas

friend of potatoes

& lover of peas


rhymer of parrots

the kaiser of roots

dipper of humus

with fingers of croutes


tzar of the pottage

a cake or a pie

cousin of parsnips

the name of a fly


sweet ginger bringer

of vitamin a

dangle above us

& lead us astray

...
