Pineapple Dirge

Fishing with Pineapples

Majestic crowned barker
Presenting hardened false front
Standing so proud warts on display
Standing so glorious for skinning alive

Assigned to the crate
Introduced to the knife
Divided to the cans
Welcome to the juice

What say you now
Humiliated from your stronghold
Spliced open for all to see
Faithful still in your core?

Give thanks to smoothie King
Join hands with the coconuts
Decorate the new tropical wine
Fruits colada together in harmonious nectar
