There are far too few rhymes

There are far too few rhymes

about lemons and limes,

and the other citrus fruits;

but, when it comes to oranges—

Clementines are fine;

Kumquats, I use lots,

Tangerines, give ways and means,

but, oranges—

Mandarins, I’ve had some wins,

Satsumas, pass on their rumours,

Grapefruit and Pomelo,

fine and yellow,

Yuzu, Rangpur, Amanatsu,

the Tangelo is a funny fellow;

but, oranges—
