Apple with WormOrganic Apple

    I shop for fruit in stores with lots of signs that say

    They sell organic food from pesticide-free ground.

    I've heard that food is healthier when it's grown that way.

    Although the cost is more the logic does seem sound.

    But today I bought an apple and when first I took a bite

    I was shocked to see a worm in the middle of my stare,

    And even worse than that most disturbing sight

    Was to find that only half the worm was there.

    With anger and distress I was utterly aghast,

    Feeling nauseous almost to the point of panic.

    But those unpleasant feelings very quickly passed

    When I realized the worm had also been organic.
