Tanka #15


Organic produce
purchased from supermarket.
— Free caterpillars —
Extra protein for dinner,
prevents plague of Cabbage Whites.

    1. As I purchased the broccoli in a plastic wrapper, with the price marked down, I wonder how many shoppers had spotted the caterpillars and decided not to buy, before the creatures crawled out of view to convince me I had a bargain.


    1. They sell lots of organic produce in the supermarkets here, and it’s not too expensive now more people are buying it. But, hopefully, there will soon be loads of produce from the allotment, too.
