How to describe my favourite fruit?
Alluring, beautiful, curvaceous loot
Delicious, energising flesh
Gorgeous, (w)holesome - it’s the best!
Juicy, karma-inducing, lush
Who can resist a mango rush?
This tropical loveliness is mine
In Australia at Christmas time.
Flown in crates from Queensland sun
Its fragrance makes my tastebuds hum
I’m unable to resist the lure
Of a ripe mango – there’s no cure!
