Apple & Worm
Here I go again writing poetry by the mile
My only job in life is to try & make you smile
Goody, Goody gumdrops, Goody, Goody two shoes
Making light is easy when I’m free to choose
I choose when to wake & when to shake
I choose when to freeze or bake
There’s no worries when it comes to earth quakes
Since my home is ripped up now as my heart aches
As with any trouble, disparity, or worry
I just take my time & there is no hurry
Yep, just monitoring the lizard
As it crawls inside my gizzard
I think of drinking the worm, but….
Is it the same one in New York’s apple?
Or the one I gave my teacher?
Well somehow, like the worm, my education crawled away!
Never mind the protein of the worm
That I as Eve consumed…with the apple
It makes women live longer than men
Therefore, the disparity of income isn’t bad then!
