Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden fruit is sweetest, or that’s what they all say
So I thought I’d give it a try and went for some today
I didn’t know just what to choose something firm and hard or what
So I thought I’d take a sample of everything they’d got.

There was some really hard ones, some were ripe and very sweet
But I chose one in the middle and it looked good enough to eat
I caressed it very gently and waited for it to please
I nearly didn’t go through with it, I was really gonna tease.

My taste buds are not set for sweet they prefer something more savoury
But no I stuck to my guns but I want no awards for bravery
I took one that looked just right, its rich colour tempted me to bite
But have you ever bitten a persimmon, that isn’t really ripe?

It sucks the moisture out of your mouth and covers you teeth in wool
Believe me you just try it; I am not giving you any bull.
Now for those that thought the fruit, would be some other man
Maybe that’s on my ‘to do’ list, before I kick the can……….LOL

Shame on you all, for all your naughty thoughts
Especially for those of you, that can’t keep it in their shorts
To all those that do struggle, to keep the forbidden fruit at bay
Just remember the persimmon and you will never rue the day.

    Wow ! The illustrious Mandy Sams, a goddess of teasing meaning. A twist of words, a provocative mind. A steep imagination full of surprise. A delicate balance of mystery and fine. Oh wow Mandy, your forbidden just had all my time !?! ;) Xx

    Ouch Mandy - predictive text changed Tams to Sams ! Please do forgive it, maybe it also read your words and started thinking of the missile ! Quite apt given the instinctive reaction, however, it was unintentional ! Xx

    Dear Mandy, My thoughts were naughty when I read the title. I have never eaten an unripen fruit working in a Kitchen to long. I have bought fruit that I would set my alarm clock for four in the morning because that is when it would be perfectly ripe Great Poem LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal (Young) Liege. ..Harry - False alarm on the had to go, even Doctors use the Library

    Nah, I am going for the forbidden fruit. Now that you mentioned it. Just kidding. I've never had a persimmon. Not too sure what it is. So does it taste better when it's ripe?
