Picking Apples

Picking Apples

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

yes

"

Because they were looking ripe

I thought it was time

They had previously been delicious

So I decided to climb

 

The first apple I picked

Made a fairly unhappy sound

Which happened after I’d picked it

And mistakenly, dropped it to the ground

 

That hadn’t been meant to happen

Sometimes things just slip

Which can easily take place

If there is too light a grip

 

Or, if you’re not concentrating

And your mind is elsewhere

No matter how innocent it may seem

Apple, still fly’s through the air

 

Perhaps the ladder is shaky

And you quickly grab for support

Then all thoughts of firm apple grasping

Fall well short

 

Or there is the romance thingy

Thinking you’d never part

And pickin apples is a real toughie

With an adversely affected heart

 

However, there was a loud ‘oof’

Then, from that apple, obscenities exploded

Straight up and into my shocked ears

Its nasty vocabulary unloaded

 

The other apples now also scowled

And snarled viscously at me

So, I took my chainsaw

And cut down that nasty tree

This reminded me so much of younger self, too young to climb ladders, so climbed tree instead. But it was I who oofed and my Mothers reaction was priceless. For some reason, once over the shock, all Mums blame the inanimate and she began slapping the tree. Made me laugh then and still does now.
Think she only went as far as threatening it with axe though 😀

No matter how many excuses you offer, the apple's attorney is going to take you apart in court. I wouldn't count on retiring comfortably, boyo.
