**One of Professor Assessor’s pupils brought in an apple o****ne day,**

**(Although it had a grub in it, he ate it anyway).**

**Professor Assessor crunched a bite,**

**Just a bit sour, but it tasted alright !**

**The grub was really an intelligent chap,**

**(Who had been studying apples and gone for a nap).**

**Hardly expecting Professor Assessor to take a crunch,**
