Banana

Here, tonight, with Abundant Banana Appreciation, I send to you, you and you Unlimited Love and Peace, and big happy richness of Heart, Life and Banana!

When you compare Banana to Apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, FIVE times the vitamin A and iron, and TWICE the other vitamins and minerals.

I have made many tributes to bananas.

The following, recorded in 2002, is a rendering of the first…

BANANA

 

 

And then one day I started writing a, some, and then lots of poems and statements regarding banana.

This is a page of most of them. If you have read up to this point and are excited, why not write a poem about excitement? Maybe excitement will be your passion, like banana is mine?

AND

Big and little bananas are nice.

WILL NOT FORSAKE YOU, OH BANANA

Banana is a lovely thing to put inside your pocket.
Yesterday I did just that and, believe me, it was so great.
I went to a place where bananas cannot be bought easily.
And I was the only person there with a banana – lucky me!

Go to places far and wide and take with you banana.
Tell the people there the love you have for your banana.
Go away and come back with some skin from foreign lands.
And keep them at low temperatures in special bags with fans.

Banana pulls my heartstrings like another thing will not.
Celebrate with me – or don’t – it matters not a jot.
Reasons have I many for why I won’t forsake banana.
But that is my quest, my love, my life, for I just love banana!

MY BROKEN BANANA

Oh my broken banana, what hope is there for you?

Oh boy, banana for lunch!

I miss my banana.

Every banana is doomed. Every banana is doomed. Every banana is doomed. Every banana is doomed.

THINK

Bananas come and Bananas go, they can be given and taken. But think, think, before and after, and during. It is complicated. Do not rush. Take a moment. Give a moment. Go away and come back.

BANANA TUNES

Practising banana tunes on my lily-pad
Marking the days off as bees run in snow
You were the dream of a pineapple sandwich
Blowing the bloodiest nose

I squeak your puffed banana
And the distance seems yet near
For the bumpy dog with impish trot
And lots and lots and lots of snot
Are too much not to bear

So when will when be then?
The sequence starts again
And then I noticed something else
To do

ONCE

Once a King or Queen of Banana, always a King or Queen of Banana.

AVOID

Some bananas
Are hysterical.

Avoid the BLEEDING BANANAAAAS!

BANANA POP

I love the preciousness of a banana
Pop
The ease of destruction

Goodbye young friend
Pop
Once you’re peeled your fate is sealed

Oh never mind oh never mind
Pop
It’s just a banana banana banana

I like to make them wait until they
Pop
They make my day complete

The ease of destruction
Pop

I SCRAPED MY SKIN

I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin.
What do you think will come of that?
Banana pulp on the floor of my flat.
I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin.
I wish I had done it over a bin.
I think that’s where I’ll end up in.
I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin and I scraped my skin.
Lost in a rhythm of banana sin.
Don’t look back and never begin.
I scraped my skin.

IT’S A BANANA

POP SONG

I have written a pop song. It is called Disco Bananas.

“Disco Bananas, Disco Bananas!
Disco Bananas, Disco Bananas!
Take bananas to the Disco and Disco Bananas, Disco Bananas!

Bananas, I like them! Bananas, I like them!
Bananas, I like them! Bananas, I like them!”

(repeat 1st verse then 2nd verse, then again and again, then fade)

I have yet to work out the music but it has a beat and some words and most people I’ve shown them to think there are some really good ideas there to work on if someone out there has more talent and can master my vision.

DIFFERENT

Some of the bananas have moved.

Some are different.

Not a lot has changed.

19/2/2011

DRIBBLE

Dribbled my banana on my dribbling pad. Happy for a while then a while of sad. Know that this won’t do but it does and did. Habit of a lifetime much exhibited. Dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble. Oh.

BANANA IN THE

Banana in the cinema, the cinema, the cinema.
Banana in the cinema, the cinema, the cinema.
Banana in the corn field, the corn field, the corn field.
Banana in the corn field, the corn field, the corn field.
Banana in the wind tunnel, the wind tunnel, the wind tunnel.
Banana in the wind tunnel, the wind tunnel, the wind tunnel.
Banana in the mind’s eye, the mind’s eye, the mind’s eye.
Banana in the mind’s eye, the mind’s eye, the mind’s eye.
Banana in the [please continue in your own way – if you like, like me, as part of a twice-daily enjoyment]

BANANA HELP

If you haven’t had a banana lately, what’s to stop you having a banana, now, sooner rather than later, really? You probably won’t regret it if you go and get a banana now and eat it. Do whatever you can to get a banana.

Is there a difficulty in getting a banana? Well, just remember, a difficulty is just there to help you see beyond difficulties. If you need more help, just ask.

MY BANANA’S IN A HOLE

Oh shit, oh dear, oh heck – my banana’s in a hole!
Someone get a lasso or a magnet or a mole,
a long reach or a pole,
a torch, a map, a flannel, or a tiny robot camel!
I want my ’nana back – I hope it won’t turn black.

Summon it with magic or a promise or a hope,
beckon it with bribery or poetry or the pope.
I think it’s snagged on undergrowth, I heard it slide a slope.
I hope that it will cope.
Better than I will cope.
Will someone please, please, please, please, please, please abseil down a rope?

Nope? No hope? I’ll sit and wait and mope.
Banana! Banana! Banana! Banana! Wahhhhhh!

Er, yeah, it’s all right…
Yeah, someone came along with a tiny robot camel.
Yeah. So. Got my banana back. Phew.

19/3/2010

LIKE

If you love bananas, you might also like cake. Try cake.

I WISH

I wish I hadn’t buried so many bananas.
They’ve ALL gone off.
Most disappointing.

CONTINUE

In spite of bad winds, bananas continue to grow. This is great.

BANANA FARMER

“I’m a banana farmer, I farmed one yesterday and said hooray –
I said hooray!
A little known fact: bananas lack a soul but the goal is to end up black.
And did you know that bananas grow above ground
And they’re found hanging ’round
And they sometimes drop with a sound
And the sound can be heard from a few yards away
And the people say hooray –
Hooray!
Say hooray, say hooray!
Hooray!
Say hooray, say hooray!
Hooray!
I’m a banana farmer –
Hooray!”

… sang Linus the little-eyed Farmerman of Eastern East, two years ago this afternoon.

26/10/2010 (adapted two years later)

STOP

Ch-chewing bananas all day long
Will stop you singing a very bad song.

YOU WERE THERE

When I went to Swansea, you were there.
When I went to Matlock, you were there.
When I went to Llwynypia, I am glad that you were near.
When I went to Cromer, you were there.

When I went to wash my ankles, you were there.
When I went to measure length, you were there.
When I went to summon might, I am glad you were in sight.
When I went to skip and jump, you were there.

When I went to get some breakfast, you were there.
When I went to buy some lunch, you were there.
When I went to grab a snack, I am glad that you weren’t black.
When I went to Brenda’s Bistro, you were there.

When you aren’t there, I feel shit.
When you aren’t there, this is it.
When you aren’t there… well, I despair.
When you aren’t there doesn’t bear thinking about, it’s just awful.

MY BANANA

You’re a lovely shape, my banana.
Your shape is nice, my banana.
I like your shape, my banana.
This shape is great, my banana.

Oh, shaped banana, you are nice.
Your shape, banana, it is nice.
I like your shape, it is nice.
Yes, banana, banana, very nice.

Well, banana, it has been fun.
Your shape, banana, it was fun.
The time we had, banana, fun.
It’s time your shape, banana, stopped.

My banana squished and mulched.
My banana chewed and gulped.
My banana now is ate.
My banana skin all scraped.

Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, banana.
