Appreciating all kinds of nuts
|Like most people who go bananas over chocolate
I'm well nuts about nuts
Stuff them in chocolate
ice-cream or sherbet
Yeah, munch on peanuts
brunch on hazelnuts
Ah, lunch on pecan nuts
or crunch on chestnuts
For nuts could never drive one nuts
ironically nutters perhaps never ate them
A nutcase perhaps never pried open one from its case
as nuts could never ever fall from grace
Any nut brown eyes shouldn't miss them
Nuts are an anytime anywhere snack
do travel with 'em' in your backpack
Savor the taste of roasted peanuts and salted groundnuts
I even saw locals munch on round kola nuts.
Western walnuts are tasty too
and acorns ain't just for squirrels
in forrests or the zoo.
Enjoy the crunchy East African cashews
Snack on slivered Indian almonds
or even Persian pistachios
Ahem well, rhyming this poem
sure was a tough nut to crack
Rhymes failed me for this
nutty crunchy snack
Besides there're so many types
I can't put 'em' all in a nutshell
I can only hope and wish you enjoy
this nutty tale I tell.
But I do hope to have offered all the nuts and bolts on nut variety
And now nothing else can rhyme here
except its creator the Almighty.
And this poem be for all poetry nuts
for don't all of you poets have such guts?
And a caveat now, yah go on crack those nuts
but take care not to crack those canines
pray protect your pearlywhites
your very own precious stalactites
those right inside your facial cave mines.
