Odd shaped thingOn top of a hollow treeI wonder what in the world can you beUnderground something sleeps softly
Thanks for this poem about the onion. I really like the imagry. It's so imageful.
I did some research into these vegtables, and I found the onion or the Allium cepa has been used in two different ways. First, in foods around the world.
Onions are found in a large number of recipes and preparations spanning almost the totality of the world's cultures. The whole plant is edible and is used as food in some form or the other.
The veggie is also used in some medicines. "They contain chemical compounds believed to have anti-inflammatory, anticholesterol, anticancer, and antioxidant properties, such as quercetin."(Same as above)
There seems to be some evidence that this veggie has been everywhere. "The cultivated onion was introduced to North America by Christopher Columbus on his 1492 expedition to Hispaniola; however, they found that strains of wild onions already grew throughout North America."(Same as Above)
