Ode To An Impatient Pineapple


Luk at yer wee body, squat an thick

Wi a mess o’ a mane that culd gee a fair prick

A mash o’ green an yella, yi dinny look right

But I huv tae admit yet quite the rare sight


A peculiar wee thing, yer no fae roon here

Must be fae somewhere the sun does appear

Aye yer awfa braw an a fair bit mare strange

Whoever dreamt you up is clearly deranged


So whit part are yi playin, in this fair feast

Ya exotic, tropical, spiky wee beast

Are yi just here tae luk at, or di we get a try

O’ aw yer tangy innards, once dinner is by


Yi prickly wee pest, are yi gonnae no stare

Am getting awfa tempted by yer tropical glares

Fir a center piece yer fair goin doon weel

But yer no the kind ‘o taste tae go wi this meal


Yer a fool tae think yi belong on ma plate

A savoury appetite yer no gonnae sate

It doesny matter if am enamoured by yer style

Yer gonnae huv tae hang on fir jist a wee while


Am no carin’ if other folks say you belong

As part o’ ma dinner, it’s plain jist wrong

A pineapple’s mare of a post meal treat

Nae slapped on tap o’ a gid piece o’ meat


Am awfa sorry if yi feel yer bein left oot

But come on, dinners no place fir a fruit

Am happy to huv yi sat oan the table

But part o’ the meal, ma stomachs unable


Ocht gonnae jist be patient ,an wait on yer turn

We’ll aw get tae yi, once dinner’s adjurned

Carved up aw nice, on a fancy wee platter

A fruity respite, to nibble, while we natter

    1. Ahahaha, yeah it’s not very well hidden. I’m starting to think I should have written in proper English and read with all the Scots inflection…. but I really liked the language study.
      Glad you enjoyed it, im having so much fun right now doing poems like this, it just adds to my already uninterpretable rambling
