Flavour of the Day
I sent my muse on summer vacation
Returning today after such relaxation
Was she up to a challenge or reluctant somehow
I said, “Muse what can you come up with now?”
She retorted back in somewhat of a dither at first
Saying “give me a subject, if you must quench your thirst”
I thought for a moment of a word more confusing
Something that would get to the heart of her musing
I said, “ Ok then let us begin with a word for thought
A word with a citrus tang both sweet and sour” I taunt
So she replied back in haste “ alright then shoot”
And I answered, “My word of the day be, Grapefruit”
She pondered it mindfully at her leisure
Then reported back to me that it is a pleasure
To think back to days of chewing gum
Grapefruit flavoured, pink fun. Yum!
Blowing those bubbles as big as can be
Grapefruit bubble gum reminds

Hope you all are ready to have some fun!
