Not a Bushel, Not a Bagful

Only six apples on my tree this year.
(One is enough, of course, for temptation.)
And god knows who to blame.
(But what does god know?
And what is god?)
But if, in fact, god knows who to blame,
then let him show his face.
(God? Or him?)
(And clearly him, I say.)

The truth, I know, is clear,
and six is not enough.

  1. 'God' has a strange sense of humour when it comes to fruit trees.
