Red Onion

Red Onion

Tonight you had the flare of Orion.

In fact, you were just like a red onion:

Which, even when sliced ever so fine

Shows its purple color divine,

And though ensconced in a bit of lettuce

You impress past any lattice.

So let them eye the leafy greens

Who are impressed with leafy things:

For nature made you good from hand to rings.
