Poetry Corner

Do you carrot all for me?
My heart beets for you.
With your turnip nose
And your radish face,
You are a peach.
If we cantaloupe,
Lettuce marry.
Weed make a swell pear.


This post is a result of mulling over turnips for too long. For stronger poetical stuff, try here.


  1. Ok, RC, I just read this poem.
    Now, I'm trying hard to reconcile this with your profile, or at least the professional you of pre-2010.

  2. Thanks, PA--
    All right, CP, always keepin' me on my toes--

  3. Peas, we've all bean there.
    He won't call back, he'll cauliflower. (Besides, I've heard he leaks.)

  4. Totally dillightful! Now go check out my own tribute:

  5. LD: Love it!
    AH: Proving, once again, just how witty you are!

  6. I was going to make a joke about sour grapes, but it was reaching.

  7. I had to read it three times ahahahahahah

  8. I: My capacity for understanding Italian puns is nil--so you're way ahead of us!

  9. I follow Alain de Botton on Twitter--he has THE BEST tweets ever! But I will also try to put my hands on his Consolation of Phil.

    Thank you!!

  10. Thanks for the tip, Linda. I read his "Architecture of Happiness" and enjoyed his insight.

  11. Hysterical. I would have never taken him for a tweeting kinda guy--

  12. PS: I hope both you ladies realize he's behind the School of Life, whose blog is to the right--

  13. I didn't know that was him. Surprised he has so few comments. Maybe people are intimidated.

  14. I'm a little confused here. Who are you guys talking about?

    "Architecture of Happiness"?

    the School of Life?

    Alain de Botton?

  15. PA: I follow a blog from the School of Life--it's on my blog roll to the right. Alain do Botton-- search him on Wikipedia--is one of the school's founders and the author of "The Architecture of Happiness" and "The Consolations of Philosophy."
    Hope this helps, kiddo!
