Adam & Eve Inventory Accountants

Adam was an 
acceptable accountant
And Eve a bubblingly 
bright bookkeeper;
Adam loved the 
First-In, First-Out
Accounting (FIFO) system, 
While Eve preferred 
The Last-In, First-Out
Inventory (LIFO) system;  
Together they testified that
Inventoried sweet fruit 
should neither 
Sits and spoil 
nor go to the 
Garden wastebasket

    This would be perfect for a country storyteller, a tall tale as it used to be called. I like it. If read with a straight reading, you can't help but smile at this. Regards and thank you very much! Gerard

    Great poem here. I really like the end concensus that sweet fruit should neither sit and spoil, nor go to the gareden wastebasket. Great twist and analogy. Chris.
