Potato So Dramatic

The potato

Dramatic to the core
The operatic potato
Strives hard to succeed
Smash the glass ceiling
Made of dirt and weed
Her rotund body
Fails to move an inch
But her pitch climbs
Note after note
Octave per octave
The Valkyrie shrieks
Yells, projects her tune
Shaking the roots, but
Above, the ground is calm
Noiseless, benign
A world unaware
Of the talent down there
