Summary

Dry cure our leaves to use in any shape or form;
We are feel good tobacco;

Cut, slice, puree, sundry or however you use,
Pasta and pizza tasteless without us;
We are juicy tomatoes;

Dry cure our leaves to use in any shape or form;
We are feel good tobacco;
 
Cut, slice, puree, sundry or however you use,
Pasta and pizza tasteless without us;
We are juicy tomatoes;
 
Chips, French fries, curly fries, spuds, skins, wedges;
Wonder how humanity exists without us;
We store food underground;
 We are golden potatoes;
 
We tantalize taste buds, make you sweat;
We are peppers and hot chilies;
 
Sauté, roast, bake or stuffed;
Call us by whatever name,
Eggplant, baigan, brinjal, melongene, Aubergine;
Imagine veggie world without us;
 
In spring and summer we beautify front and back yards;
Petunia, Datura, Angel Trumpet, Kiss-me-Quick;
 
Buffalo bur, horse nettle, silver leaf,
We are nuisance weeds yet colorful;
 
Now, if you want to cure or poison yourself or others;
we advise not to but if you insist
try medicinal Belladonna or toxic herb Mandrake;
 
With a set of 5 petals, 5 sepals and 5 stamen
We were evolved into
Tomatoes, Potatoes, Peppers, Eggplant and, Tobacco;
Dealing with narcotics and poisons,
Yes we are a bit shady;
Still we are family, Nightshade family.
