Heirloom Tomatoes


Hard to get is Pierrette; less so is Pierrot
Enterprises roll the dice and change the status quo
In the red await the seeds for placement in the loam
Ripened, swollen, injured, with stigmata or with stoma
Less-than-purists come along and…à chacun son goût
Ouch the horse that you rode in on OUCH your puppy too
Obsolescing Nature’s way creates a North untrue
Modify perfection and you miss a rendezvous

What Heirloom Tomatoes are, and why this is therefore a polemic against genetic modification, is left for the reader to explore.
