growing bananas

Five years ago I started growing banana plants
They were all free from Craigslist transplants
Except for one, which was special, so I decided to pay
It was an unusual variety and it was my birthday
It cost twenty-five dollars for the three-gallon pot
The seller was uneasy, but I wanted to give it a shot
Well, it’s been five years and my plants have grown
All, but one has produced pups which are their clone
I get bunches and bunches of bananas every year
I know they are ripe when the flowers disappear
All are towering and touch the sky
Expect for the twenty-five dollar one, he’s only knee high
