The fruit were at it again. Strangely, they were all arguing in rhyme.
I do remember this one time
When orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime,
And maybe even clementine did state

That they were far superior,
Because of their interior,
And every other fruit could not equate

But watermelon rolled on by,
To tell them with a weary sigh
That they tasted bland compared to melon

Honeydew agreed with him,
And then continued, on a whim,
"Though I'm the best and cantaloupe's a felon"

Cantaloupe then interjected,
Saying "Just as I expected,
But you're really just my lousy clone"

Said the banana, "Here's what's true:
I taste better than all of you,
And also I'm by far the most well-known"

The apple did object to this,
He said "That's your opinion, Miss,"
And pointed to a nearby alphabet

"A for Apple," read the pear,
Then looked at P and said "No fair:
The word they have for my letter is Pet"

Kiwi laughed, and said "Though small,
I do taste sweeter than you all,
Just stop your arguing already please"

Then pandemonium broke out,
But was stopped shortly by a shout,
And a mighty, supersonic sneeze

Two hands descended from the sky
To grab them all and toss them high,
And juggle, juggle, juggle them around

Then the human, he got bored,
Distracted by an orange gourd,
And so the fruit did smash upon the ground
