An apple, Medieval people did say

In the Bible caused people to stray

Gilgamesh into the sea did dive

In search of the fruit

To make Enkidu alive

For an apple of gold three goddesses did contend

Tempting Prince Paris

Bringing great Troy’s end

The apple’s importance, thus, is hard to deny

But the fruit also makes a lovely pie
