Orange cordial

orange cordial
is not as nutrishous as
just eating oranges

Teacher's comment reads:

Cordial is not a food! This should just be about oranges. Also: "nutritious" (note spelling).
points: 2

Okay, sloppy spelling on my part (I'm sure I would have known that word given mum was a foodie in those days), but seriously??? It was another bloody good haiku, tyvm (factually correct an' all), but because it was a drink and not a "food" she, what, just ignored the positives so she could harp on about the failings? So glad she was just a sub teacher, cos if she'd been in charge of marking my regular work I probably would have stopped trying.
