Treasure Island

Godfrey Rust

(London, England)

Adam


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

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
