The Life Cycle of a Banana

Men make jokes about bananas,
  phallic as they are:
  but there are other analogies there,
  one needn’t look too far —

The time when your time has not yet come,
  and nobody will want you,
The time when the defects start to show
  when each new spot will haunt you,

The time when there’s little left to prove
  that you were once alive —
And the very brief moment, the day, or the hour
  when you, for a moment,

  thrive
