BE RINDFUL

One small boy
can handle an apple,
A peach, a pear,
the largest strawberry.

One girl can devour
an orange, a fig,
a pile of dates
or even blueberries.

Between two pals
A giant grapefruit
or a big bunch of grapes
won’t very long last.

Among a few people
a bowlful of raisins
Or a pound 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.
