The kernel

My beauty’s not the earthly kind,
it’s what they call ‘internal’,
kinda like the gritty bits
referred to as a kernel.

Not pretty on the outside
and even worse within,
I’m the bit that folks consign
to the garbage bin.

I wish that I was handsome,
kinda like George Clooney,
though I’d keep the kernel as it is,
a feisty Mickey Rooney.
