The Red Tomato.


red tomatoTomato is so red

looks like blood

I love the colour

never in a pallor

the redness dazzles

the tomato baffles

used in all almost

could find them in the toast

scattered in the salad

sung in the ballad

found in the gravy

heals the scurvy

a skin toner  in a way

keeps blemish at bay

tastes so nice

mixed with rice

a liveliness in

till it goes to the bin

a lovely vegetable

proud to have it in the table

never too expensive

affordable and defensive

an agent of immunity

consumed  by the primitive

continues its utility

great and curative.
