A carrot has a green fringed top;
A beet is royal red;
And lettuces are curious
All curled and run to head.
Some beans have strings to tie them on,
And, what is still more queer,
Ripe corn is nothing more or less
Than one enormous ear!
But when potatoes all have eyes,
Why is it they should be
Put in the ground and covered
Where it's too dark to see?
