Bitter gourd – Vegetable Rhyme
A song on bitter gourd! They’re not as bad as they seem! It’s a vegetable worth developing a taste for. Just look at how much it has to offer you! You’ll never say no to bitter gourd again!
I am the bitter ‘bitter gourd’,
I hail from the family of gourds,
Bitter melon I’m also called,
I’m so medicinal I deserve an award!
I’m oblong and a dull or bright green,
All over my skin ridges are seen,
Inside me is flesh soft and white,
And oval seeds that are crisp and light!
Like other gourds I grow on vines,
For support I have tendrils fine,
From delicate yellow flowers I grow,
My pretty leaves grow neatly in a row!
My health benefits are several,
I help lower your blood sugar level,
I help you reduce excess weight,
For your heart and stomach I’m simply great!
Although I may be very bitter,
Have my juice to be much fitter,
When I’m stuffed you’ll simply lick your lips,
You won’t say no to my yummy chips!
