You stare at your potted tomatoes,
Wondering why they haven’t borne fruit.
Against your will, you pick a dollar canned tomatoes,
With its promise of vitamins A and C,
Sauté them with minced onion,
Spread on your home-made chapati,
Top with shredded cheddar and bake.
Yum! Crust so thin and crispy…
No need for pizza delivery.
Still, you wish for fresh tomatoes.
