Genesis

Via Genesis

Once upon a time

There was a world that was sublime

with fig leaves galore

Even at the general store

And anything but apples were the daily core

Of everybody’s diet

But like all women you know

There was one in the garden

Who ignored the word “No”

Didn’t care to obey

And liked to talk to snakes

And got her man into a lot of trouble

Because she was denying the obvious she deceived the dubious

Her motto and deemed creed :

“Instructions are for Adam’s but

Not for Eve’s”

“Why ,why ,why ,” she’d cry

“I like that tree but I’m not allowed to eat

Or even have a pet

Of the slithery set

And that became her battle cry

“Oh why ,god ,why ”

Poor Adam went deaf with

One rib less , then started to see red

Apples to apples were a catalyst

That eventually accumulated

in a watershed

of liquid depth and people said

“Somebody needs to build an ark”

But that’s another story….
