Adam Considers the Proffered Apple

Try this

Where’s it from?

Take a bite.

Has it been washed?

Just eat.

I can’t see a label!


I don’t know its country of origin!

Don’t make such a fuss.

I just want to know,
It’s not every day I taste forbidden fruit.

It’s not every day you’re offered it.

I hope this isn’t the start of a new diet

Who knows what it might lead to.

Ah well, what have we got to lose?
Here goes.
