It was summer's end
when she unearthed him.

Shall I boil him unsliced?
she asked her mum.

They curried him, buried in spice,
the taste was exotic and felt right.

That poor fellow has his fifth appendix in the wrong place, above his belly button!

Cute ekphrastic poem.
If you don't like the black theme, it is easy to switch to a lighter color. Just ask me how.

If I don't critique your poem, it is probably because I don't understand it.

Brilliant, mac, pic and poem 👍

My parents grow a lot of vegetables and my mum sends me some decidedly odd photos sometimes! I also loved making vegetable models at school :D

:D Thanks both. Ancestors would have worshipped the little earth god, rather than plated him up!

He is a god, isn't he? I must find my mother's photo of the strangely shaped potatoes. My friend Aussie Dave said they looked like alien beings! :lol:
