BE RINDFUL

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.
