Poisonous Seed
Poetry By Anthony James

I went for a walk,
What did I see?
Limbs full of fruit
All for me!
 
But as I drew near,
A sign became clear-
 
"A Poisonous Seed Bore This Tree"
 
I looked upon it's branches,
A massive Tree!
With billions of apples
All for me-
 
But all I could think of,
Was the poisonous seed-
And every apple that I saw
I had no trust in, indeed.
 
I could never bite into
A poisonous thing-
For it would poison me, too
Undoubtedly-
 
And so I stood there, afoot
Of this tree, when I noticed in the bark Leveled with my feet
 
Etched deep in the trunk
"EARTH"
Below that
"Adam & Eve"
 
And I thought to myself,
I am an apple on this tree.
