An Avocado in the Snow

An avocado
An avocado, found in the snow near Portland St and Broadway, Cambridge, MA

An avocado in the snow.
Who left it there? I do not know.
Not Father, Son, nor Ghost so holy,
Rebirths you into guacamole.
Did leaping from some wretched fate
Allow you to feel special, great?
Or did, cast down like ancient foe,
You weep from terror, weep from woe?
But lie here now, near Portland Street,
And rest, green flesh and tasty meat.
