The apple of his eye

Adam, says Eve
Do you fancy an apple
And then if you're lucky
Maybe a grapple.

An apple, says Adam
Scratching his chin
What will God say
Won't we commit sin?

Eve shows her wares
To the shy Romeo
Cortland, Pink Lady
Jazz, Cameo.

Gala and Braeburn
Fuji, Jonagold
Cosmic and Empire
Envy, Gingergold.

Golden Delicious
Granny Smith
Red Delicious
Honey Crisp.

Newton Pippin
Cox's Pippin
Ruby Frost.

Tempting lady
And a looker
Adam wisely
Chose a cooker.

  1. I”m not sure I get it. Does cooker have two meanings? I once wrote a poem about apples. It was my only ever attempt at being sexy in my poetry. But I never thought to rhyme apple with grapple. Gosh darn it. πŸ˜‰

    • Sorry, I should’ve explained this. In UK cooker generally refers to a cooking apple. It can also be used as a lazy way to refer to a person (usually female) who does all the cooking!


  2. no man should be subjected to such a torrent of temptation πŸ™‚ I had no idea there were so many different varieties of apple; good one, Hobbo πŸ™‚

  3. Wow that’s a whole lot of choices to sin by! I was a bit confused by the use of β€œgrapple” so I looked it up. It also means to generically modify an apple, no wonder there are so many choices. However I did enjoy the humor of this.
