165. Baby

There is something somewhat odd with the new breed of Naval Orange I have been buying from the local market over the last month. Namely, once peeled the fully grown oranges almost always house a smaller less matured orange inside them; as if expectant fruit mothers. I wrote this poem about the phenomena. 

Orange shell holds juicy swell, 

Sweet and citric, rhyming hell, 

2 for 1? Try small inside, 

Baby born from orange hide.
