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 James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
