Potatoes Under Ground

Posted: June 13, 2016 in Uncategorized

Potatoes Underground sprout things called eyes

They never blink, or squint, or get sleepy.

They dig through loose earth and find spots to grow.

Up, or down, or over, it’s all the same

to a potato, life, death, and winter.

They shoot tubes to other tubers. A pun.

They think it’s funny. Potatoes are dumb.

Everything in the dirt has predators.

So many bugs, and bedrock, and boredom.

That’s why Potatoes need so many eyes.
