Apple Pie Innocence

Warts and All

Apple Pie Innocence
           Warts and All
A calendar filled with abandon joy holidays
Fun with the fullness of life triumphant music
Drum and bugle parades dances mascaras
And caricatures of the famous and infamous
An apple pie innocence celebration of a town fair
A time and a world that rode on a Ferris wheel
From the virginal innocence of Adam and Eve
To a virtuous elevated place above
A world of greed sanctioned by Satan
Slithered filled the garden with hatred
Beyond the seven original sins
Sprung open the Pandora’s jar
To destroy take down kill poison
With all the devil’s hell arsenal
The seven virtues and the trinity
Of faith hope and love virtuous pillars
Cardinals they are to the promised land
The apple consumed opened the door
To a world of compassion for all the Babylon gaiety
Of the gods and goddesses lusts that were the norm behind doors
Unperturbed serene and tranquil the  goodness
Of humanity remains whole safe in the keep
Shamed and banished from the garden Eve’s
Children redeemed thrived imperfections even so
Blossomed matured for the better or worse upon them
The virtuous life beyond the apple pie innocence
Asked for the strawberry and blueberry pies a la mode
