riches from the tree
I once found a potato
shaped like my head
I showed it to my lover
and this is what she said:
“Taters have more vitamins
than the greenest celery stocks;
plug two wires into a ‘tater
and you can power a clock.
Cut one in half..
remove a broken light from a socket
The miraculous potato
always keep one in your pocket.”
So I planted my potato
(the one that looks just like me)
in my victory garden ..and waited…
for my new growing potato tree.
I shall soon have plenty of potatoes
(that look just like me)
and after ‘tater tree pickin’
I shall bring them, my love,… to thee.
