Ode to the Thanksgiving Squash of Scotland

O behold

-----the Thanksgiving Squash of Scotland.

O lovely squash

-----you remained


---------------nestled among the other produce.

You spoke to me

-----and bid me buy you.

Some aspect of your unique appearance

-----awed and baffled the ASDA checker;

----------she fumbled in your radiant presence.

If only they knew, others would desire you,

-----but you came to me, my precious.

Soon your worth shall be known to all,

-----suspended for all time in these lines.

All will know too late that you belong with me,

-----O Scottish Squash,

----------in my home,

---------------in my heart,

--------------------'til death.
