The Apple : A Writing Exercise

The Apple

There was a time when I could have loved you. But since the beginning you have coveted our apples, until finally and greedily you consumed them all.

Although, struggling as you do you cannot resist us for all your money and power you still take of us. You are our demons and our gods.

You have made wars, committed genocide, spread epidemic disease, and deliberately too in search of yourselves and to honour yourselves.

But you cause us pain and that pain wells up so that half the world is pitted against the other, and why? Because the twisted and slithering snake that you called teacher, became your friend.
