Mango Madness



Seduced by a fruit!
Walking in the steps of 'Tom Jones'
(No! Not that one!)
I hardly knew him.
We met at a party;
We drank mango liqueur.
It was fiery and sweet
And it set the tone of my downfall!
We danced.
We drank more!
'How about we go in search of the real fruit'
He said.
Hand in hand
We wound our way
Through the dark, still, London streets.
Discussing mangoes.
How juicy they were,
How exotic,
How foreign,
How exciting,
How elemental,
How made for people like us.
By the time we found the fruit stall
Hidden away near the Underground station
Mangoes seemed like the food of the gods.
'Let's find somewhere to share this'
He said.
So we did.
And now he has gone
And a slice of mango is all that is left.
I was led astray by a fruit.........

An Acrostic
(Suggested by Acrostics Only)

Let it all hang out!
Absolutely scream!
Unleash a cheerful shout!
Gloom? That's not our theme!
Happiness is very catching.
Laugh and you'll find others matching!

This poem really helped me this morning brenda, thank goodness for good sound friends like yourself. Could I use it please?

You know, seduced by a fruit could be read two ways.

Excellent WWR entry!

I think I read this poem in that other way Alice hinted at.

I loved the images. Well done (and great ACROSTIC, too).

I got a few giggles today from this, double meanings abound.
