Keeping with the weird down under thing
In comes a fruit with hair that tastes kind of like a strawberry with a tropical twist
With a skin that could use a bit of a shave, while that isn’t too freaky
It was the fact you can eat the hairy part that made me shudder
Silently the sun crosses the deep blue expanse
Keeping the ground below bathed in its warm glow
Yet my fingers and toes don’t feel the love
Chocolate chips, brown sugar, vanilla extract play lead guitar
Oh, and all the stuff that gives it structure like a good back beat
Organize the lumps of raw dough on a baking sheet
Keeping good social distance between them
Igniting the oven and bringing it to temp so this party can get started
Everything comes out ooey, gooey, and so bad for you. Yum!

(I have not tried them yet, but they look awesome!)
Can it be we are a time that the number of likes is a metric of success?
Leaving empty falsehoods and catchy memes the currency of the realm
It is sad that each one of us has to become fact checkers to just exist
Creating a media weariness that affects all of us to one degree or another
Keeping us dreading, yet secretly addicted to, that next mouse ….
May your true self always be hidden from prying eyes
As you go about your daily life
Simplifies things like emotional attachments
Keeping everyone distant and you, safe.
