Julie Mango - the Mango Poem

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Julie Mango Off My Mango Tree

Julie Mango Off My Mango Tree

It is mango season and the trees are full

All types of mangos in the Caribbean island of Jamaica to make your tummy full

Some big some small, whatever kindles your fire

But if you say you don’t like Julie Mango, you are a god damn liar

Some people like Blackie, some like Number and Bombay

But when it comes on to that special taste, it is Julie all the way

I don’t fancy stringy, it gets stuck between my teeth

Some people like East Indies Mango because it is meaty and sweet

But despite anywhere you go, no matter the flow

You just can’t beat a Julie Mango

Sweety Mango is adored by a few

And Bastard mango sometimes will do

But when you go on a mango walk make sure you think

You will love the Julie Mango faster than you blink

The succulent and rich taste of the Julie Mango is like a bite of heaven

A Mango you would want to indulge in again and again.

I never heard of Julie mango, but I wish I had a mango right now. In face, I briefly visited Jamaica and loved it. I wish I could come back right now and pick my own mango. Thanks Clive!

Mangoes are a popular fruit here too...never heard of the Julie though. One of the most popular here is the Bowen Mango, named after the town/area is originated. Cool poem, Clive.

Eating on a mango right now. I have never met Julie before though, I swear it.
