The Bragging Bean

It’s a bean anyway
It grew up inside the pod anyway

I thought there would be a tulip at least
Or a worn-out boot even

It takes out a tongue rolled up like toilet paper from the bean
It blows air into it
It inflates it like a balloon
The tongue expands like it’ll burst and then decides its order
Once the high and low order is determined
The tongue stopper is pulled out and it goes back to its place
It rolls the deflated tongue back into the empty head
It’s a bean anyway
It grew up in a pod anyway

When it drops, it tosses like a rubber ball
When it drops, it goes into the sack all at once.
