Fruits and Radicals

Green Bell Pepper in the Garden, by Martha Cinader Mims, for the Poem of the Day. copyright 2008 all rights reserved.

a non-peppery pepper
that’s not really a pepper
a misleading misnomer
of columbus courting the queen’s

she was accustomed to black pepper
and would have fought against
free radicals too.
