‘Dem apples



Tasty or Waste-y? Delights may turn enjoyment to blights.  



‘Dem apples



They say the fruit does not fall far.

How do you like ‘dem apples, dear?

The test is tossed. The choice is clear,

Although the bet may be bizarre.



One-sided coins fill not the jar,

But one pomme spoiled the lot may smear.

They say the fruit does not fall far.

How do you like ‘dem apples, dear?



The pungent smell may reach afar,

Though swirling sea still spins the sphere.

 “It wasn’t me,” sounds insincere

When bitter flavors shade each star.

They say the fruit does not fall far.
