Apple (inspired!)


Sometimes i think
is it good or is it bad to be an apple of one's eyes?
if there was no apple
then God would have selected some other fruit for the existence...

Newton should be grateful in heaven
God does not grow water-melons on trees
or else no Newton, no Gravitational theory...

i see injustice on your part
to have forgotten Blake's Poisonous Apple of grudge
in your poem
as we all implant a poison tree...

Apple of technology
Is an apple of discord among the school kids
Of white-collared parents,
So I don’t like it…

A deceiving fruit
Glossy skin and shine
But is there any guarantee inside?

But even then we need it
If we want to keep the doctor away,

And we need it too
If we want to arrange our poetic images
In an apple-pie order
Just to convey to the reader
What we want…

to all my siblings, there’s my request
For some day If I be your guest
Do not offer to me the BiGG Apple
It’s better to have a simple glass of water
Mixed with purity of affection! ! !

    Lolz, Indeed a fine satirical mimicry on the APPLE.
    Newton was surely a blessed soul had Apple instead of watermelon....
    And if Apple Inc reads this poem will definitely sue against you.....
    Enjoy reading. (Report) Reply
