Title:菓󰊳 - Jackfruit
 NômEnglish
Content:身㛪如菓󰊳𨕭𣘃
䏧奴芻仕脢奴𠫅
君子固腰辰㨂󰣽
吀停󰣾𢱖澦𫥨𢬣
My body is like the jackfruit on the branch:
my skin is coarse, my meat is thick.
Kind sir, if you love me, pierce me with your stick.
Caress me and sap will slicken your hands.
Notes:The large, smelly jackfruit can be prematurely ripened by piercing it.
