Apples and Oranges

What is war?  

Well, it's like an Oreo
and chocolate chip cookie  
arguing over whose chocolate tastes better
because they're different;  

or, an apple and orange  
fighting for control  
of the fruit bowl  
 
But why?  
 
Because each one thinks  
they’re the fruitiest of the lot  
 
Are they?  
 
Tell me what you think  
 
I think they make me sad  
‘cause I like them all so much
 
 
See how smart you are?!  
 
Can I have a banana now?
