Ode to the Apple

Oh, Symbol of material Love,

The ‘Apple’ of my eye,

Your cold, mountain fragrance,

Red beauty, Temptation,

You are the reason for life,

Knowledge, for the world’s

Material existence and

Humanity’s distance from god.

By you, we were separated from Eden.

Peaceful, wholesome, godly Eden.

You, the fruit of knowledge.

How you, everyday

Keep the doctor away

Yet put Snow white into a

Coma- forbidden fruit!

‘A’ for Apple,

Technology’s edge, maker of

Revolutionary iPhones, iPods etc

The ‘orb’ that prompted Newton

By dropping on his head.

The Example they use to say

‘The word is not the thing.’

I will eat you now.
