I once had a orange
That was succulent and sweet
It was my own possession
It was mine to keep
It then became sour
And shrivelled
As a dead flower
So I went to take a bite
Of an apple I coveted on sight
And oh my!
What a great delight!
Now I keep this apple
That’s succulent and sweet
It lasts much longer
And it’s mine to keep
