The finish line seemed just out of reach,
for the legs pounding on the amazing running peach.
He was one of a kind never before seen,
Like his vegetable cousin the famous runner bean.
Almost as amazing is the high jumping apple,
built round and voluptuous but amazingly supple.
The long jumping banana is a sight to be hold,
but once got it wrong and he split I was told.
An onion that can throw the javelin so far,
better than being pickled and served in a jar.
But my favourite must be the hurdle jumping cucumber,
Always great to watch and always one to remember.
