Some nuts appear pale and some are dark brown
The peanut is actually grown underground.
Pistachio spicy, macadamia rare,
the almond grows in the south if you care –
Chestnuts are roasted, and beechnut you chew
Some are just toasted with salt. The cashew
is soft like the pine nut in pesto’s strong flavor
Pecans are sugared on pie tops. We savor
Brazil nuts, walnuts, all variety
even the hazelnut in our coffee.
The coconut’s large and the betel nut small,
But size doesn’t matter, for we know that all
have their own unique cracks and their own special cuts.
in spite of their difference, know they’re just nuts!
