When in Roma

Nose

Turned up

Pushed away

Poor tomato

She refused to eat

Raw or cooked, either way

Ketchup she could tolerate

Her parents couldn’t understand

She’d eat ketchup and tomato soup

Couldn’t stomach the original fruit

Although it was never documented

Precisely when she tried them again

Perhaps on a fast-food burger

When mixed with the condiments

Culinary heaven

And it was game on

Stuffed with tuna

Tomatoes

Tasted

Good
