Why must things take so long, Drag on and on and on and on - Then whoosh! they're here, and then, they're gone. Consider the avocado. Avocado unripe is ever so bland, And will ruin any lunch you've planned,
But dare you leave it there unmanned, And there goes your avocado. But it takes forever! (And costs a bit), So on the ledge you let it sit, Of course what happened was it's sprouting pit, Such is the avocado.
And no one likes that woody taste, For shame, for sure, and such a waste, But really if you wanted haste, Don't pick the avocado. And knowing it's no thing to keep,
You chucked it on the compost heap, Wishing hard that you had chosen cheap, And instead bought the tomato.
