Homicidal Fruit

I’m here to spread awareness of
A homicidal fruit.
Oh sure, it looks quite lovely,
So summery and cute.
But pain and tingling happens
Whene’er you take a bite—
This fruit can make your tongue swell up
And that just isn’t right!

The fruit of which I’m talking
Is pineapple, oh yes.
The problem’s not the outside
(That’s coarse, but I digress.)
The problem’s when you cut it
And take a bite or two—
Its cruel and crazy enzymes
They start digesting you!
