 Apples...  and Grapes 

            Women are like apples on trees.  The best ones are at the top of the tree.  Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt.  Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.......
            So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing.  They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.
            Share this with other women who are good apples, even those who have already been picked!
            And...  Men are like a fine wine.  They start out as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
Women Are Like Apples
by James Ebb Huggins, Jr.
Women are like apples - decorating an apple tree.
The sweeter ones are at the top -  for all the men to see.
  Some of the men fear reaching - for the riper ones at the top,
  Fearing they might fall to the ground - with a gigantic flop.
They often search among less sweeter ones -  scattered all around,
Hoping to find a compatible mate - laying on the ground.

  The apples on the ground - are as happy as can be,
Having all the men - flurrying around for them to see.
The sweeter ones at the top - think that something is wrong,
Not having men strutting about - with a mating song.
So they improvise a way to stand out - to encourage the right one's embraces,
By wearing tight fitting jeans - and painting up their faces.
So when it's apple picking time - and sweet apples are found high and low
Cherish the apple fate has made for you - and by God's Grace may your love glow.
