Lucky the invisible floating walrus once caught an awful virus from a piece of bubblegum but he was not dumb so he ran away to play all day away from evil clappers but then again (dun dun dun) lucky couldbe a kidnapper!!!


One tree.
One fruit.
One bite.
The fruit-
it’s mesmerizing,
tantalizing,
probably delicious,
yet Forbidden.
Forbidden
But not locked away
Or hidden.
It will-
open my eyes,
and give me everything
I could possibly want.
I will be like God.
How can that be bad?
Its fragrance
wafts
everywhere.
I walk
s l o w l y
to the center.
where it grows.
The Tree.
With The Fruit.
That
One
Bite
Is all it takes.

Crunch

That’s the sound of the world shattering.

Can one single bite change the world forever? That was what I tried to explore in this poem. It's kind of Eves' poit of view on when sin entered the world... ummm enjoy I guess.
