THAT UNREACHABLE FRUIT

I saw a juicy fruit
On a very huge tree
One said to have fruitful seeds
Making “kwaa-brefre” stand at ease

II
Its smell, so potent
Its colour so attractive
A youthful and ripe look
I stretch but can’t fetch
Its tree holds it so high
Why?

III
Thorns are hired to it protect
Leaves are tasked to it shade
I need this fruit
Only this fruit in whole
To make me whole

IV
My seeds I need
To feed from it
My grounds and I need it
To stand so firm
So other trees and plants
Will recognize our stance
Fall like my manna
Ye goody fruit!
