Appearances can be Deceptive!

Life is bizarre; today I read
On a Facebook page of a floor bright red
Spotted with blobs of sticky goo
What had my friend been going through?

The suggestions ranged from pools of blood
A deathly hush, a heavy thud?
Perhaps a knife had been misused?
So where to start to look for clues?

Down-to-earth and calm, my friend
This apparent violence – a new trend?
Certainly not a drama queen
But clearly a disaster scene...

I read on further – lend your ears
You won't guess in a million years!
From the kitchen freezer she had chosen
A box of raspberries all frozen.

Perhaps the box was not quite closed
When she dropped it – Heaven knows
But the ruby fruit began to thaw
The result: a gory-coloured floor!
