A single boy can handle an apple,
A peach, a pear,
the largest strawberry.
One little girl can devour an orange
A pile of figs,
dates or blueberries.
Between two pals
A giant grapefruit or
a bunch of grapes will not last.
Among a few people
a bag of raisins
Or a bowlful of cherries will be gone fast.
But above the rest
is one social fruit
That can only be consumed
by a large group that’s gelling,
Because like a village raising a child
It takes a whole team to eat one watermelon.
