Poetry - An Apple temptation

Apple Tempter

An apple a day keeps the doctor away
but note well the temptation within.
The sweet, dripping nature that one bite does spray
is tainted by foul devil therein.

A gloriously, glossy outer covering,
shining with goodness and promise,
hides malevolence, beauty is mocking,
good taste camouflaging the badness.

Think well before folding to temptation
life’s path may never be the same.
Clamped lips warding off evil Satan.
Delicious orb has the power to inflame.
