Don’t be fooled by the beauty

Of the prickly pear cactus you see

There are thorns the sizes of needles

One look, and I think you’ll agree

Though the fruit can be rather tasty

It has other uses as well

No need to bother with the salon

Just grab some pure pear gel

There are many more ways to enjoy these

Just try them, little by little

Still, best to watch where you’re grabbing

Else you’ll land yourself in the hospital
