poem: Original Orange

Original Orange
You are original
like the word orange
which doesn't rhyme
with anything
and even though
people try to make up
words to rhyme
with orange
it's not a real word
like orange is
it would just be known
as the word that
wants to rhyme
with orange
A wannabe orange.

You are original
like the word orange
you are simple
but complex
with more than
just one meaning
like, you can paint orange
you can eat an orange
or you can paint an orange
and then eat it
you could even place
the orange on a shelf
and just stare at it
from time to time
but why?
