Apple

 

 

In the beginning there was a tree

All hung with apples, sweet as can be

What harm an apple, one apple from the tree

A little knowledge will surely set us free

 

We crossed the oceans, we learnt to fly

Unpicked the helix, forgetting why

We split the atom, our flag unfurled

A little knowledge will surely light the World

 

We left the garden to claim the Earth

Weighed up creation to calculate its worth

Struck out for heaven, built towers to the clouds

A little knowledge has surely made us proud

 

What harm an apple, one apple from the tree?
