Foods are symbols from time gone, ‘winged shoes of the forest.’ The onion doesn’t symbolize anything, it’s just visceral. Remove it from your poetry at once and eat it.

A poem with an onion
is known as an opinion
domains that harbor onions
are monikered dominions
the minstrels with the onions
presumably were minions
an egg without an onion
could be a rolling pinion
