‘An orange is not a Satsuma’

An orange is not a Satsuma;

but, a Satsuma is orange all the same,

Identical they are, apart from their size,

and except for the sound of their name.

There once was a rumour

that a wayward satsuma

‘peared up’ with an orange from Spain,

but, when the details were sought,

there was evidence nought,

and the story was held in distain.
