Vegetable of the Gods

By Eric Vallen

Couldn’t make you any dumber

At least it’ll disencumber

Most definitely for a new comer

After eating one asunder

Especially in Summer

They’ll all want your number

Would be wise to use a rubber

And stoop under

Helps you avoid a plumber

Or a bamboo cutter

Should keep you out of slumber

Only if the drink it does outnumber

If not, perhaps get a new Hummer

One of a green color

And renumber

So you can eat a cucumber.
