The Fruit Sticker Manifesto

An orange, an apple, a tangelo-
day by day, the collection grows.
Like marks upon my prison wall,
two-hundred stickers do recall
the countless hours of sressful labor,
with only minutes each day to savor
the sweet flesh of citrus or pomaceous fruit-
waxed and painted and labeled, to boot!
You know that saying, old folks say,
How doctors are easily kept at bay
When you take the time to eat an apple a day?
Maybe it's true and maybe it's not,
but I never got swine flu, and I won't get the shot!
