I am a leafy green, some grapes
and two, quite large, potatoes.
I am a carrot, and an onion,
and two ripe tomatoes.
I’m two big bunches of bananas,
slices of white bread.
I am a juicy watermelon,
the size of your head.
I’m two pears and two oranges
which are delicious fruits.
I’m also lotuses –
but not the flowers, just the roots.
I’m all of these delicious foods
because I’m what I eat
from my huge watermelon head
to my banana feet.
