Not Nuts, A 100 Word Tribute

peanuts came from Mexico
so they tell me, long ago
not on the plant, but underneath
protected by its outer sheath
it matures until its tasty meat
becomes a salty wonderous treat
there are some who like them roasted
some like 'em boiled instead of toasted
doesn't matter how you eat 'em
it sure is hard to try to beat 'em
I've put a plenty in my belly
churned to butter with grape jelly
though I love these little tubers
can't get enough of eating goobers
legumes they be, no ifs or buts
closer to peas they are than nuts
