Seedless Bananas


They are really freaky things
These goddamn seedless bananas
Nellie at the deli said
That some types of ice cream
Have been discontinued
Because of the cost it now takes
To produce them
You can’t even get goddamn lemons 
no more
Another chimed in
A big, bearded man
With gray, plaited hair
And oranges, too 
Because of the droughts, though
When I go back home, to Puerto Rico,
You can just pick off the fruit from the trees
And that’s all organic
It isn’t all sprayed
You can just eat it
And all of that’s free
