tempted to write dork for the      
crossword clue 'Stallone role' 
suggests I didn’t see much in 

Rambowhich is true but then 
I’d play Mutant Xmas Mango 
if the ripe price was right 

so the first Kensington Pride 
consumed this year from my 
trees had a proper ceremony 

12 days to ripen seems to fit 
this grand occasion properly,
although ensorcelled in a bowl 

& whichever way you'd view
its gustatory symbolism, it’s
still lost on Johnny Rambo
