Good Day World!
I had fun with this poem…hope you enjoy it!
Sandbox Tree Story
the Sandbox Tree is an evergreen tree of the spurge family
found in North and South American tropical regions
it’s nicknamed ‘no climb monkey’
a peculiar moniker for any tree
The Sandbox Tree can grow up to 200 feet tall
and has large leaves that grow to two feet wide
but that’s not the strangest thing of all
it’s fruit is an exploding ball!
ripe pods catapult seeds for hundreds of feet
at speeds of up to 160 mph
it’s quit the feat
and a visual treat
Also known as the Dynamite Tree
for the explosive sound of ripe fruit popping
and splitting into segments rapidly
it’s as strange as any tree can be!
