In Praise of Gooseberries

Gooseberries, round and pink and hairy
Eaten by queens and constabulary 
Cooked in pies and crumble bakes
Made into both jam and cakes
Enjoyed at lunchtime and for tea
By those of high and low degree
Gooseberries, beloved of pilgrims and nomads
And those who like sucking on pink bristly gonads
