Apple Is Red

Why do they say in books, an apple is red?
Don’t they know there’s also other colors too.
I have seen green ones;
I have seen yellow too.
Apples have variety unlike a plum
Which only comes in one color, purple.
Only because red apples are seen the most
Which gives reason for books to say:
“Apple is red”


I peal one layer off;
One layer at a time;
Slowly your wear
Strips to the last;
No other layers remain;
But the under skin;
Which placed into my mouth;
Is sweet;
Is juicy with a tasty tartness
That sweetness is too much;
For me to enjoy at last.
