Strange Fruit


“Imagine an orange that’s red—
The outside, not inside,” he said.
“No doubt you’d look twice,
Then gulp rum with ice
To drive the weird sight from your head.”

  1. Yum. Good one, Teach. I considered a glug of rum in my morning coffee, but settled for Kahlua…

  2. This is absolutely brilliant! I love the juxtaposition of the images here 😀

  3. Strange fruit indeed. Made me think twice!

    Great limerick! There IS something strange about a blood red orange, now isn’t there??

  5. Limericks, good ones, are not easy to write ~~~ yours is spectacular and fun, which is the point.

  6. Nice one juicy and witty as well

    much love…

  7. “Then gulp rum with ice
    To drive the weird sight from your head”

    Ha. 🙂

  8. MMT, I like your limerick. It reminds me of the barely read newspaper, read on the outside but not on the in.
