Day 20: Trees



Why was it a fruit tree?
Why not a lazy fishing day
Beautiful breezes blowing their way
A pan-fish dinner and then hit the hay
Instead of an apple that drew them away

Why was it a fruit tree?
Why not a meal of potato and steak
With buckets of wine their thirst to slake
Let out their belts and let in the snake
Instead of an apple their souls to take

Why was it a fruit tree?
Why not an activity deviant
Since there was no one to say no you can't
So much carnal knowledge they could implant
Instead of an apple their beds to supplant

Why was it a fruit tree?
Because it only can bear
The weight of our sins that would be placed there
And the fruit of righteousness for us bear
Instead of the apple of sin we share
