Adam - Poem by Godfrey Rust

it wasn't me

it was that woman
she doesn't know what's good for her
she did it

and then
it was that snake
horrible slimy snake
I wouldn't have believed a word
I wouldn't have been taken in
imagine a talking snake
well I ask you

and then
and then
it was you
you made Eve
you made the serpent
it's your rotten apple
you knew all about it—
I was miles away
doing the garden like I was told

you're the one
you did it
it wasn't me
it wasn't me

and anyway I only took a little bite

    A moment of damnation, even questioning God, is well pictured.Was it not Adam's infatuation to Eve made him to bite the apple? (Report) Reply
