The Tomato Speaks
The tomato is sitting on the kitchen counter screaming.
Why is the tomato screaming?
Maybe he just isn’t getting along with his siblings
sitting there with him:
Is he having trouble with the bush?
Perhaps he heard about what Bush has done to his health care.
Maybe he’s upset about plans for the environment,
bad growing conditions,
and crowded housing conditions.
That’s a lot for a tomato to have to deal with.
I can see how it might get him down.
Is he just bored and wanting to go outside?
Is he feeling stress and pressure
From all of life’s problems?
Can you hear him?
He is still screaming….
I think he feels out of place because
after all he’s a hothouse tomato you know.
