Lemon to Lime


From time to time, the lemon
wished it was a lime.
The lemon said,
“You’re lucky to be a tart citrus delight.
You’re not synonymous with sour,
and you’re not used as a saying
for something that doesn’t work well.
I don’t like it when people say,
‘That car’s a lemon.’”

The lime said,
“But there’s the second part of the saying,
‘When life hands you lemons,’
the part that discusses lemonade.
Besides, to be famous,
we should’ve been oranges.
They have it really good,
since everybody loves their juice.”

“Tell me about it,”
said the grapefruit with a smirk.
