Apples and Doctors – the eternal enemies

An apple a day keeps the doctor away
It is said.
A poem a day keeps even the compounder away
It is unsaid.
Lions and hyenas are eternal enemies
Born enemies are snakes and mongooses
Likewise apples and doctors are born enemies.
The daily apple drives the doctor
To streets with beggars.
One wily doctor tried to eat up
All the apples in the world.
In the midst of a night,
He sneaked into the mansion of a computer wizard.
One bite into his apple
Awakened Mr.Steve Jobs.
He caught the doctor by the collar
And gave a sound thrashing
In his bottom.
And Lo! the Icon of Apple Inc.
Became once bitten.
And Steve Jobs left medicine for good
To become a friend of fruits
And lead a healthy life
Till he visited Heaven.
