Annual Satsuma Poetry Slam! November 27, 2006

Share this post

Yes, it is the annual Satsuma Zooma slam. A fruit-based poetry slam that churns through a metaphorical blender here at The FruitGuys to produce a smackin' smoothie of fruit love. It also seems to coincide with the annual employee meeting when everyone reminds me that haiku is a weapon when used inappropriately.
Ode to the Satsuma!
The Satsuma makes me Zooma.
Happy when I peel it I might just hum a tooma
or clap my hands and make a booma.
When I get that sweet crisp shot of tart and tangy Satsuma, Ӭso juicy and sweet and quick to please between my cheek and guma,
I feel I could run just like a puma.
In a daze of citrus joy I reverse its high degree and refer to it as magna laude cuma.
It wont make you fuma'
or lose your sense of huma',
now go out and spread the tasty word of the Satsuma ruma. ӬLike I said, sweet and tangy it makes you zooma!
Enjoy this week's offering of the Satsuma. They are the small-ish mandarins with an easy to peel skin (some will also have a stem and leaf still attached) They are sweet and will only get sweeter as the weeks progress. The Satsumas are seedless and super-easy to peel. Just stick your thumb in the bottom of the fruit and gently break the skin (there is a natural small divot at the bottom). Then peel easily and eat the wedges. Enjoy and be fruitful!!
