Dirge for the Half-truth
Red juicy apple, sweet home to a worm,
whose discovery, the unhappy fact
that this clandestine crib served a half term,
we're astonished and no time to react!
Dismay in the face of decay's abuse,
horrified features displaying a frown,
disgust's revulsion decisively spews
half the evidence, posthumously, found.
