the papaya man

The papaya man Soon
Buying from him for months
Sometimes good, sometimes bad,
At times rotten but still cheap

In the market papaya is sold
In chemical content to let the fruit fresh
I don't see any dark spots or soft dark skin
It is always in perfect colour of golden yellow

In the supermarkets I find
It is in dark green pluck down too early
It doesn't have the yield of sweetness
It is good for making soup

But the papaya man Soon
His fruits don't have the chemical content
I can see his papayas will get rotten fast
I can see the skin turning colours in the heat

The point is this
It turns rotten quickly
The papayas need to keep in the refrigerator
It will stay fresh and will not get rotten quick
