I've just been talking about a poem that we were made to read in school aged 10/11 The poem was about a radish, and I have reason to believe it is simply called The Radish, though I might be wrong about that. I can see no sign of a poem called 'The Radish' on google, nor any poems about radishes besides amateur ones posted by people, and certainly no sign of the one I remember from school. The annoying thing is that I have a memory of searching for it not so long ago and coming across it very easily as if it were a very well-known poem. The reason it sticks in my mind is because it had some curious imagery for a poem on the primary curriculum which had the parents raising eyebrows - it used rape as a metaphor at one point, and at another point I think likened harvesting radishes to castrating someone. Was anyone else taught this poem as a child or have any knowledge of it or links to it? Thanks in advance to anyone.
