Tomatoes Are Berries - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
Too much wine will, at first, make you merry
(it is best to slow down on the Sherry) .
As from grapes they make wine
would you come and taste mine?
Each tomato I use is a berry!
After stomping them all we can do,
while the yeasts are fermenting the brew,
is to lick off our toes
like our forefather pros.
And perhaps play the Didgeridoo.
Soon the yeasts from our feet will create
an advanced and delicious new state.
Bloody Mary-like juice,
and for regular use
for you folks and for me and my mate.
Just to tell you myself what I mean,
there's a substance called Lycopene.
It will help you to pee
keep from cancer you free.
It's a berry but never a bean.
Yes, tomatoes are indeed berries.
