There is no doubt at all you think:
this fruit cannot be eaten.
Should they in paradise still wink,
temptations would be beaten.
Apples, however, shine and smell
and can seduce with looks,
which, as we know, did not go well,
told in the Book of books.
Appearances sometimes deceive,
so get to know the core.
With knowledge that you then retrieve
you cherish fruit the more.
The fruit of this sweet chestnut tree
is covered till it’s ripe.
It’s soft and brown and then falls free
of outer layers’ hype.
