How to Distinguish a Banana from a Yam
Sweet potatoes are members of the species
That is not, my good friends,
A sweet potato is orange in and out,
except when it is brown outside.
A banana is yellow out and white in.
A sweet potato, though,
is not a true yam, i.e.,
a member of the family
There is absolutely no truth
to the rumor that the banana
belongs to the yam Diaspora.
