An Anti-Ode to the Raisin

When the worried little grape
was chewed out of its chocolate shell,
it realized how much it was loathed
for masquerading as a chocolate chip.
Though it was not spat upon,
it was spat out,
often buried or picked out of
mounds of peanuts and M&M’s,
and tossed into the trash.
So, it used chocolate coating
as its collagen,
but no one with any taste
could be fooled.

It was still a damn grape.
