Funny Poems for Children

Fruit Is Good for You

Now who told Adam it was safe
     To eat fruit from the tree?
Was it poor Eve?  Perhaps the snake?
     Well it surely wasn’t me!

Then who told Adam: 'Take one bite:
     Fruit is good for you'?
It must have been his better half -
     Yes, Eve. I’m sure you knew.

But why did Eve take all the blame
     And not put up a fight?
The snake had told her: 'Fruit is good.'
     Now don’t say that’s not right.

If you had been a naughty child
     And disobeyed your Dad,
Then told him: 'But a snake told me,'
     Your Dad would think you're mad!

'A snake?' he’d say: 'Whatever next!
     Don’t tell these lies to me!
Your story is preposterous!' -
     And I think you might agree.

So who’s to blame for all of this?
     Why, God is, this is true!
For everyone, but God, it seems,
     Says: 'Fruit is good for you.'
