When I was about five
I thought tornados came alive.
Alive into a big tomato with legs
walking up the hill to where I lived.
Waiting anxiously outside my front door,
I was afraid but wanted to see more.
I imagined a big gigantic tomato coming up the street
I thought it be cool and thought it be neat to see.
Wind starting blowing and sky became still
the birds disappeared, I began to feel chills.
I imagined Big Tomatoes footsteps going boom, boom, boom
my family hid in the basement in the family room.
Sleeping downstairs was fun for me
we were all together as a family.
Now Big Tomato never did come
but I have fond memories of a night of fun.
