Fruit of Devine

There are many theories on what the forbidden fruit might have been.  On the 24th day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020, the optional prompt is to write about a particular fruit of our choice.

Fruit of Devine
by Michael Doyle

Of every tree, we might eat freely
But that of good and evil, says the Deity
Is the one we must not or die
That's the trick of fate for you and I

This indulgence might bring pleasure
But, it's one we'll surely not treasure
For we of such limited mortality
Easily become captive to our immorality

Many believe and then there are some
That the evil is that of the mallum
An apple, stuck in the throat of man
Who make his best of knowledge that he can

But I, for one, tend in thought to believe
A thought that may cause others to grieve
That the splendor of Zohar does define
The truth of fruit of grape turned into wine

In the goodness of Noah, back in the days of when
He attempted to rectify man's path from Adam's sin
And grape wine was given to holy purposes at a sip
But alas, the verity of man turned this into unholy drip
