The End of Eden


The End of Eden”Eve

Eve offered it to Adam: “Take a bite!”

Meanwhile, the devil wormed his slimy way

into the apple’s core and out of sight.

“Hey, Eve, where did you find this fruit today?”

My friend, the snake, said ‘eat it’ and I did.”

As Eve complained her stockings had a run,

poor Adam tasted evil that was hid.

They say the silkworm had such enterprise

began as root of fashion in his day.

And was a way the devil could devise

to cost poor Adam all his daily pay.

Oh, Eden’s lost; our hero’s doomed they say

when Eve did stitch a fig leaf round his bay.
