Our first line of defence;

so protective and bold,

and handy for cricket

if the batsman is old.

 

With ‘fortress like’ walls,

housing battalions of seeds,

they supply in each mouthful

most of our daily needs.

 

Oh, how a meal they enrich,

in one form or another.

They are packed full of iron

with no added sugar.

 

Big beef ones are great,

and little cherries, divine,

when just swallowed whole

or taken fresh from the vine!

 

This versatile staple

outsmarts all the fakes,

and sees off all the radishes

in the supremacy stakes.

 

So ebullient, so necessary,

so addictive and fine,

I must say that tomatoes,

are good friends of mine.
