Demi Lovato related: “The Apple-A Cautionary Tale”
Inspired by the post about Demi Lovato and her praising the fruits of degeneracy and pushing it on the young.

Part of me feels pity for what was done to her, but now she is part and parcel to the evil of the culture she is steeped in.



The Apple

Thrice a dozen apples,
Hanging from a tree,
A fellow came along,
And they all cried,
“Pick me! Pick me.”

He spied one nice and shiny,
Though still a bit unripe,
And through a lecher’s grin,
He said,
“You’ll do, you’re just my type.”

And so with grimy hands,
He reached and plucked it,
From the tree,
He fondled it and leering said,
“How sweet, you’ll come with me.”

He got that Apple polished up,
Then shared it with his friends,
Tossed it in a bowl of fruits,
And then took pictures of its skin,

The Apple felt so special,
The Apple felt so grand,
Then he put it in his pocket,
And he squeezed it with his hand,

That shiny Apple, passed around,
Got used to being used,
It’s skin was still quite lovely,
Hiding flesh inside now bruised,

The Aqualungs that craved it,
Grinning as they licked their lips,
Would have it be a tart,
And then discarded like the pips,

Now the apple’s used and dirty,
And its skin has lost its sheen,
A new crop is coming in,
To replace what once had been,

So the lechers just replace it,
Knowing now it’s full of rot,
So it goes back whence it came,
In the barrel with the lot,

But inside it knows it’s different,
And it tries to hide the bruise,
Skin intact but flesh inside,
Corrupted now from being used,

And instead of warning others,
Of the picker’s lechery,
It’s convinced it was a gift,
Bruises marks of bravery,

Whispers how the rot is lovely,
And its poison starts to spread,
Through the barrel degradation,
So it’s not alone, instead,

Thus the current crop is spoiled,
And not even fit for lunch,
Seems the old proverb is true,
That one bad apple,
Spoils the bunch.

Her parents should be ashamed of themselves. They served her up on a silver platter for money.

It reads better if you imagine the quoted lines coming out thick and sleazy, reeking of gin and smoke, through the teeth of a rat faced Hollywood executive.

Like this, but in a fancy suit.

Figured you did. I’ve said this before, but you, sir, are a genius.

Blows my mind that anyone would downvote this. You have to laugh at the OT - can never tell if it’s jealousy or people holding grudges because they didn’t like your opinion on another topic.

Brilliant stuff as always.

This and your other writings here are simply awesome sir. Tip of the hat to you.

This should be read by every parent of a potential Hollywood or Disney child star. It seems the norm in that industry and not the exception.

A genius would find a way to market and make a bit off of it. I’m a fool who happens to be good with words, but appreciate the kudos all the same.

I think it’s a mix of that and the fact that a lot of people don’t like reading much more than a blurb, even on a message board.

But I’m glad you enjoyed it, even though the topic itself is really rather sad. They prey upon our children.

That really is brilliant. How long did that take you?

I’m no great judge of poetry but that’s as good as anything I’ve read.

Bravo Sir!!!

About 20 minutes off and on. I did it between stops.

Once I’ve got the idea and the flow I’ll kind of mull the words while I’m driving and then write them down when I can.

Sadly I don’t think it will do any good. The stories are out there, but the allure of money and fame just seems too strong for some people

I had to come back to this Comment.

Poetry is nothing more than words, designed to capture a feeling, a mood.

The rhyme structure is more for flow, for cadence. It’s just rhythm.
As far as judging goes, you are the final judge. The words hit everyone different, like a painting. It either speaks to you or doesn’t. And if it doesn’t, that’s not on you.

I like rhyme because i like rhythm. It’s easier to write in chunks, especially in this medium, and stanzas give you that.

It really boils down to what you like.

Your poetry is like Shel Silverstein meets John Prine. The extremely clever innuendos and meters stand out. I wish more people knew about your talent.

Not many people can do that with words. You are a pure talent.
