Ripe

Are you starving for a piece
of my juicy peach pie?

Oh, you silly, silly boy –
tricks are for magicians
with rabbits hopping from
behind green screens.

You see, I don't wear hats
of many colors, just this one,
the color of my peach pie.

It's ugly, you know, but I can't
give it away to just anyone.
I've had this furry hat
much too long for that.

Instead, I'll wear my peach
slice with pride, and when
naughty little boys like
you try to steal my slice
of steaming hot pie,
they'll get burned, and run
to their mommies, screaming.
