The Fruit of Knowledge Hangs From a Tree

Hangs from a tree

Ripens in the sunlight

Rots in the dark

                          

A bite will cure all sorrow

Except that it will kill

The one who eats it

So nobody ever does

                                  

And any worm that dares

To crawl inside it's lethal skin

Will know much more than it

Was ever, ever meant too

                     

And will suffer because of it.

            

Amen.

The End
