Do not buy a plantain,
It is not soft nor does it peel eas'ly,
And can't be eaten plain.
The plantain must be cooked, apparently,
'Fore it can be eaten,
It looks like a banana, but it lies,
And now my breakfast has been defeaten,
Add insult to existing injury,
I've no way to cook it,
It will stay 'til it rots laughing at me,
It's laughing now, look it.
I joke, I joke,
But I have been denied,
Lured by something that was not what I thought,
Now others can't enjoy the prize inside.
