You Say Tomato, I Say
Mike Orlock


Grow 'em
Pick 'em
Slice 'em
Lick 'em
Stir them into soup
Skin 'em
Crush 'em
Blend 'em
Mush 'em
Pound them into goop
Boil 'em
Freeze 'em
Fry 'em
Squeeze 'em
Let nothing go to waste
Can 'em
Jar 'em
Bag 'em
Store 'em
Reduce them to a paste
Love 'em
Crave 'em
Bought 'em
Ate 'em
Can't get me enough
Red vine
Big Beef
Early Girl
I'm addicted to this stuff
Black Plum
Cherry Buzz
Heirloom Green
Orange Jazz
Mmm, so good to munch
Indigo Beauty
Marizol Magic
Are there any left for lunch?
