Yackity Yak

Designer tomatoes on the sill
but I don't eat them
you talk to them to foster growth
"Please don't eat me," the little ones say
SmartBoy(TM) tell you why you shouldn't
     ethically and philosophically
the new Cerebral strain really earn their keep:
do your taxes, feed the cat
(for those who can afford to have one)
install the new Windows
even distract bores at parties
install their own defenses
boobytrap genes, toxins
teach themselves hypnotism
warp space and time to their advantage
no, I don't eat the red stuff
I would never hurt
our crimson globular masters.
