Radish Harvest!

Here's a silly little poem for your reading pleasure. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy. :) 

The Detested Radishark

In the middle of the ocean,
In the deep deep dark
Dwells a monstrous apparition,
The detested Radishark.
It’s an underwater nightmare
That you hope you never meet,
For it eats what it wants,
And it always wants to eat.

It’s appalling bulbous body
Is astonishingly red
And its fangs are sharp and gleaming
In its huge and horrid head,
And the only thought it harbors
In its small and frightful mind
Is to catch you and to bite you
On your belly or behind.

It is ruthless, it is brutal,
It swims swiftly, it swims far,
So it’s guaranteed to find you
Almost anywhere you are
If the Radishark is near you,
Pray the beast is fast asleep
In the middle of the ocean
In the dark dark deep."

Considering many people I come across are quite terrified of radish and say things like, "ugh I despise radishes," I thought this poem to be appropriate. Although, recently I've enjoyed them pickled. Also, sliced thin and placed on a fresh slice of bread buttered with salt and pepper. Give em a try!

A Happy New Year to you from Garden on Marais! 
We are most definitely looking forward to the fruits of two thousand and thirteen.
