Apple round, whole and complete
a healthy snack for you to eat
your brain sends out the ernest plea
pluck that apple from the tree
you size it up with pure delight
then without warning take a bite
you hear the crunch, you taste the juice
your teeth meet and you break flesh loose
your pleasure has came at a cost
what you have gained the apple lost
the apple screams in silent pain
as your teeth attack again
your mouth with a bitter taste it floods
a backlash attacking your taste buds
the next bite you will then forestall
then examine the apple so very small
so when plucking apples you should know
you first must let the apple grow
