What You Look, Go Ahead!

I would say why you wait
What do you look, go ahead
If you have a wish to crack me

No more I fear if you break me
As I know I would become a chip
To remain in your roof over head
If I am crushed like a stone

Go ahead what you look
Cut me into pieces
I look soft, appear green
But I know inside me I hold red
Like water melon I am full of sap

If you like you may press me
As you press a lemon
As I know in this world of patients
I am more preferable than you
‘Cause I work like a medicine.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

3 times i posted it on poetry.com but none gets the meaning some says its bargaining some says it is good to place yourself like that, when i wrote a note that it is ironic..one is very sarcastic and says ''really? ''- - stupid...these are autobiographies and apart from that the poem is very ironic... the author is nothing to do with the persona!

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
