Why I Hate You? - Poem by Nithya Balachandran

O, strawberry, I hate you!
Never could I stand your taste,
Even your flavour, and in all your forms
You are the worst fruit to me,
Though I know all health benefits you own.
And all those calories, vitamins and minerals
Still I find you horrible!
My taste buds gets pissed off,
Everytime I see you
They yells out, oh, ' hell, just escape
And no more of that again, for heaven's sake'!
You tastes like those terrible
Nauseous medicinal syrups and tonics to them
So, I can't blame those poor buds of mine
Pardon me, my friend
I know, you are a popular figure
And has a lot of fans and lovers
I have never bothered you, as long as I could remember
But everytime you finds a reason
To come near me, just to leave me irritated
Some times in the form of
A friend's birthday cake slice
Or as a flavor in a toffee!
Gifted by someone dear, with love
Or else in some other form,
You come uninvited to my life, to annoy me
Whenever I saw you in a fruit stand
I always distanced myself from you
Never tried to harm you in anyway
But you had always tried to irritate me.
Many a times, I had given you a piece of my mind
But you seemed to remain the same.
Stubborn, arrogant and annoying as ever!
How can you blame me if i hate you,
For you always loves to get on my nerves
Though i never did anything wrong to you.

    Great poem. This is just the opposite of an ode to a strawberry. In spite of your dislike for the fruit, you have made it all the more adorable. Thanks for your inimitable style. (Report) Reply
