Nomenclature


So, Why The Green Grocer?
By GC

A rutabaga isn’t green
neither is a turnip
a carrot is bright orange
a potato brown or red

The tomato is often ruby red
or sometimes that tomato is yellow
as is the tearful onion
and then there’s leeks and shallots

All of this leaves me confused
mostly a muddle in my head
but the green grocer I guess
at least can sell us collards

oops!

Food Chain
By GC

Moving
searching
catching sight
and smell

I’m the hungry
green anole
stalking
the marsh verge

No match for
my flicking tongue
dragon fly’s
day is done

Oops!
I didn't see
that split tongue viper
stalking me
