THE APPLE

Updated: Dec 23, 2021


The Apple may it be,

The Apple you see,

Falls unscrupulously

From the tree,

And tho it be,

It falls upon I and thee.


For tho we were not there,

That unscrupulous day,

To participate in an unscrupulous way,

Still we were rendered mortal,

By that infamous Apple,

That Apple in the tree,

That Apple as it were,

That Apple was not free.


Would you have partaken,

From that naughty Apple?

Would you have bitten,

From such temptation?

To be smitten,

Doomed,

As it were to mortal nakedness,

To spend your days,

Covered in cape?

Huh? Would you?

Would you have bitten?

And risked being smitten?


Hindsight is,

It’s the devil’s playground,

“Jess one little bite,

Z’all it takes,

To be smart and bright,

As He,

You see,

For goodness sakes,

Just bite!”


You think it was really an Apple?

An apple Apple tree?

I mean I’d of had my eye on Eve!

Now that, satan,

Would of fooled me!


But just like that,

In a touch of nonsense,

Poor ole’ Adam,

Made his choice,

He lost a rib,

Was duped by a fib,

When all of that,

Could of been free,

For him, you and me.

So take a lesson,

From the garden son,

Take a lesson from me,

Don’t be fooled by what you have,

For what they say could be,

Dance wit Him what brung you,

And don’t go a’near,

That Apple tree! (See the bonus Stanza in Comments section below)



Author’s Note: Questions? Did the Apple fall far from the Tree? Was there just one apple on the Apple Tree? Did both bite, or just one of them? Did they finish the Apple? What kind of apple was the Apple? What happened to the Apple? Who was to blame? Did Adam yell out, “Apple Core, Baltimore,” or, was he to ashamed?


Let me ask a question I have pondered: What sort of thing, being, “snake” or whatever could have ever convinced a perfectly pure woman created in the IMAGE of God, in the Garden of Eden prior to ever sinning, to eat the Apple? Did she recognize it? Snakes don’t talk. Who was it? And why on God’s perfect Earth, would she believe such a thing/being, and take a bite? Have you yourself ever seen such a being/person/demon? Have you ever been convinced by the devil personified, to do something against God’s nature/command? To take a bite? Hummmmmm? Think about it. Things are not always as they seem. Stay alert, do diligence and pray to the Lord God Almighty to deliver you from evil, should it be convincing you🙏
