Kale

Kale

A Poem by marcus

Most meaty of greens
Oh, how I fear you
As the new beef you are proclaimed
But what's wrong with the old one?
A power packed punch, of nutrition you may be
But instead, for some reason, you punch my sanity
For to the eye you appear, like an innocent lettuce
Yet somehow, you are most thick, heavy, almost like leather
   An alien plant
From a jungle on a far off world
Where the leaves grow so big
That they eat people alive!
Every time I eat you
I feel you should be eating me
I fear you will come alive, and devour me whole
A plant with blood pulsing through
It's leafy veins, seeking...
Vengeance
For so many a devoured kin

Very creative and unique prospective, it made me smile and frown which is not as easy as some might think. Very interesting poem I really enjoyed it but the humorous side of me thinks you should have titled it Vegetarians Nightmare :~)

thank you!
Marcus I am so glad you read some of my work, which brought me to this gem. Funny funny stuff. I like your mind. A little off center. That helps to balance for all the "Normal" so called out there. I expect I will be coming back to read this just for the laugh. Description was over the top.

A man eating vegetables is rare, but a man writing poetry about it is, well, abstract. Nice! haha

i see allegory written all over this one...always afraid that life will turn around on us, and eat us alive...

things we don't understand often scare the beejesus out of us.

I always love to hear your perspective on my work!
Ahahaha what an interesting and different perspective on Kale! I can understand your frustration with kale. I was like that at first. What is this weird leafy thing and why should I eat it? But it's quite a delicious and nutritional addition to whatever else you plan on eating. Just frying it a bit makes it so juicy and yummy. I also make kale chips sometimes by roasting them in the oven with some sea salt sprinkled...they're so crunchy!
