Day 5 – “Grapefruit”

Standard

Grapefruit by Jaymie Gerard

There’s one fruit I can say I hate

(Though others seem to think it’s great)

It looks kind of like an orange but

You’ll smell the difference when it’s cut

It’s usually a softball’s size

And yellowish or pink inside

It’s bitter, even with some sugar

The pulp, to me, feels like a booger

It’s just the worst, you can’t debate –

So Mom, WHY IS IT ON MY PLATE?!

    • Yeah, somehow grapefruit has become one of my favorites, despite how horrible I found it as a kid! This morning, however, I juiced a big one (in a blender) and it was so bitter that it brought back memories!
