Watermelon Life

Life is a jolly watermelon
With seeds and juice galore;
Should I need someone to share it,
I know you are only next door.
Some might say the rind
Is so thick, who can prevail,
But I think of the soft center
Impacted by every detail.

How often do you bite right down
To the edge of any other fruit?
These watermelons hold the prize
Of filling you up tongue and tooth.
Let's share this wonderful repast,
And limit ourselves not today:
Life is just one watermelon
No matter how much you can pay.

Just been contrasting this with Stu`s `Apricots.
This is a bit more democratic and sharing 😃

(I like the way you`ve got the impactedness of
the seeds in the juicy soft centre)

I just thought i'd mention that this reminds me of a scene in the sixties' film Tom Jones : the scene of Albert Finney eating a water melon in a suggestive way was quite strong meat in those times; he was facing a lady at the dining table - perhaps you remember it.

Nicely evocative! Ray
