Indulged and Uncontrolled

The eternal fruit of the Adam’s apple:
Destined to never spoil until
the tree it sits upon dies
contains so much trouble.

Misnamed, it hangs from the male and female.
A bony spike that wraps itself around the voice box
making men louder than women,
making them believe they are superior through force.

But it’s real purpose is to jump when nervous.
Embarrassing scoundrels and thieves
it waggles up and down when they lie
especially when to there wives.
