I too will ripe

i-too-will-ripe

I shall not look at you
And cry over my state now
Your time it is to ripe
So you ripe beautifully
We drink from the nipple
Of the same mother
Yet you look plumpy
And attractive than I do
You satisfy their quest and thirst
And appeal to their insatiable cravings
You suit the decoration
Of their grocery basket
And well placed for the day’s meal
No not me for now
I don’t drive their interest
And do not meet their specifications
Yes and I don’t care
Neither do I worry
I too will ripe in my time
And be fit for the Cook’s use
I too will ripe some day
