ANY OLD FRUIT

"Tea time".
Yelled my significant other half,
As her friend was joining us,
Thought I'd have a laugh.

I replied. I'll have a orange, lemon
And a bun. I peeled the orange
then the lemon doing this for fun,
Then threw them both away;
As I put the peel inside
That tasty little bun.

When I took my first bite,
The look of horror on her face,
She must have thought,
Me eating all that peel
was a real disgrace.

I left the room when
The wife came in.
Her friend told her in disgust,
While sipping on some gin.

"Why did he only eat the peel".
With all the drinks,
She was a little stiff.
The wife replied. "That's Alan all over,
He always takes the pith".

Great, a lemon twist at the end. Ice one
