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
