Limerick Green

23 May
the green - a creamy yellow shade of verte
the seed is not a nut, the stone of fruit
the little shells of beige will split in two
to use the thumbs is how the kernels hew
the science calls this seed the fiber food
it feeding flora gut bacillus too
the green - the creamy yellow shade of green
among the best of foods to feed
pistachio pistachio the queen
will separate to see the creamy green
between the siesta teeth to crunch the cream
