Peel and Crust

Eat an orange peel and what do you taste?
Not so good is it?
Eat a banana peel and what do you taste?
Not so good is it?
Eat the crust off a homemade pie,
Eat the crust off peanut butter and rye,
Eat the crust off pizza as the bad guy,
Eat the crust off, bone dry.

Eat the chips before touching the queso,
Eat the pita before touching the hummus,
Eat the sandwich before touching lettuce,
Eat the mac without any cheese.

Food is malleable and requires a palate
That can exhaust its taste requirements.
What monstrosity is this when you eat
The crust off for pure bliss and tomfoolery?
There is a reason people do not eat the peel.
There is a reason people do not only eat the crust.
There is a reason people loathe and love food
Without the mistrust of obesity.


Well, this is weird. I'm not sure about this poem, but it was weird writing it. I guess I'm hungry and thought of food the whole time. I'm a little sick right now too, but hopefully some halls and airborne will take care of that.

I hope you enjoy!
