Rotten Banana

Hello. I am a rotten banana. 

I was green outside. 

I was small.

I was ripe. 

 

Now I'm older and I am 

black outside 

and inside.

And my outside 

and my inside 

have changed. 

I'm squishy and gross.

Don't touch me. 

 

Hi. I am a rotten banana. 

I was once yellow outside. 

I was at my peak. 

I was ready to be eaten. 

 

Now I'm older and I am 

black outside

and inside.

And my outside 

and my inside have changed. 

I'm squishy and gross.

Don't touch me. 

 

Hey I am a rotten banana. 

I am now black and brown.

I am unwanted.

I am now squishy and garbage. 

WAIT.

No. 

I am Compost. I am Helpful. 

I am no rotten banana. 

I. Am. New.
