I am a banana stalk
I am a banana stalk and was married off
to a plump guy with an elephant head
But oh he’s so loving, he brings me
good luck, and he’s the son of a god

Written for napowrimo #23, unlikely couples.
This poem alludes to Kola Bou, a banana plant, who in Bengal is considered to be the consort of Ganesha.
