Palms for the Poor

Palms for the Poor

(H/T to Bactris gasipaes, as seen here.)

Palms for the Poor

It's not an Adams non-working cat on your palms

that's working its other-worldly charms

The palms of David bear peaches

(not bunches of grapes)

-such delight in its reaches-

Cruciferous cabbage might be more to your taste

Nothing, nothing will go to waste

You could even harvest its heart

Soul food is not this plant's best part

Pssst: psittacidae...

Look! Parrots up high.

Parepou fruit: CC2.5
