Orange hated being compared with Apple,
as he was quite pithy & had a zest for life,
although not without a peel,
didn’t know the difference
between a screwdriver & a mimosa.
He was forgiven for his culinary sins—
squirting ketchup on hot dogs
& spooning sugar in his grits—
when he made the cruelty-free,
& flavor-free brownies that,
put them all in a good humor.
Deciding to peel off some pounds,
Apple, Banana, & Pear Shapely
went to the gym,
only to have Hourglass
give them several karate chops &
pour them into smoothies.
