Monday market


I'm more of an apple lover,

I fell in tune with the old adage,

an apple a day keeps the doctor away.


I can't help but wonder,

does this apply for  just the apple.

I find myself intrigued by the pineapple,

succulent than the apple

sweeter than the apple 

bigger than the apple?

I guess size doesn't matter here.


As I wander about the market I glare at the display of fruits

I touch this and crave that

in mind my battle lies between apple and pineapple.


I'm mesmerized

does the pine in apple beg me to keep away, tread with caution or abandon all efforts entirely.

I'm held in awe by the pineapple

      You can beat an egg & a drum of course .. but you can't beat a decent pineapple or code can ya .. You can of course break them both though .. an intriguing concept well poemed .............. *#++^##!x
