Breaking a coconut

is a fine way to de-stress.

De-husking a coconut

brings benefits with it.

If you’re seething with anger,

break a coconut.

If you’re not happy with the result,

scrape it out,

and if you’re distressed,

squeeze it out.

and if you’re still burning,

cool yourself out

with a tender one

and oil your head to sleep.
