Its skin’s the scratchy, prickly kind
And palm-like leaves on top you’ll find
But right inside this hidden treasure
Lives a taste too great to measure
Past the moon and furthest star
A treat…the sweetest one by far
This yellow, juicy fruit’s no fake
It’s used in upside-down baked cake
And yogurt, smoothies, cottage cheese
Or by itself, it’s sure to please
Now can you name this tropic fruit?
The one that wears the prickly suit?
Did I hear you? Did you say?
Pineapple? Hooray! Hooray!
