Fruit Cup

My favourite fruit is a fruit cup!
Fruit cups create interest as
they are mixed with exotic and
unknown commodities, many
of which may never be
experienced.  Most of the time
a fruit cup is in some
distant plantation, with all
types of fruits, and dangerous
animals.  But the fruit cup
survives, and perseveres, like
generations of fruit cups
before.  Unlike other fruits, fruit
cups are proud of who they are,
and the juices which flow through
them.  Although, I like the cup
o' fruit, as I know, what I
see is what I get, and that's
what I like!
