Not What it Seems

A peanut is in fact a bean,

Tomatoes fruit, not veg.

Bananas are a berry but,

The straw ones not, I pledge.

A velvet ant is just a wasp,

King Crabs are not crustaceans.

A lizard is the Horny Toad,

The Seahorse, no relation.

Sticks of chalk are just not that,

In pencils there's no lead.

And salt is not a salt at all,

It really hurts my head.

The funny bone's a nerve, you know,

No laugh it makes you do.

An Elephant's a type of fish,

(That last one isn't true!)
