FLIRTING WITH A CERTAIN NATURE

When Sweets are young,
They're like the blossoms in the trees -
While Sours are like
Honeybees buzzing in the breeze:  

But as Bees grow and stretch their wings,
The Sweets grow into fruitful things -
Like apples dangling in the trees:
As wee Bees turn into possums -  

Climbing through the leaves and taking chances,
Ravaging the fruit between the branches;
'Till Sweet and Sour Possupples evolve -
Like you and me and he and she revolve
In every other, universal
Possibili - ty, " T ", tea, and tee-off...  

...We drive to play our fun and games
In choosing names
For all we see and do to have -
'stead of thinking.  

Careless blinking -
Caring more for things than winkings!  ##
