The Forbidden Fruit

The Forbidden Fruit Is bound to be cute As enticing as it can be A forbidden tart May capture your heart In the blink of an eye, you see A Forbidden Fruit Dumps the resolute Straight down the chute to Hell And every recruit Soon learns the route No need for the ding of a bell A Forbidden Fruit has one attribute That mothers pass on to each child When mother says, "No!" Her child will hear, "Go! 'Tis certain to drive Mother wild!"
