In Eden God once put a tree
Bearing knowledge of how things “should be”.
Not of Evil and Good,
Nor a literal food
But of man knowing better than He.
Now Eve bought the lies of the Snake.
The forbidden fruit she did partake.
She said “I know the plan,
Better than the I AM.
I am certain that He’s made a mistake.
“Adam, you should be wearing some pants. (she said)
And you should not work hard like the ants.
And in birth and in rain
I should never feel pain.
Now I must hide from God in the plants.”
Then God came to Adam and his wife.
Said He, “Why have you brought on this strife?
Though I yearn for you still
You’ve rejected my will
And you’ll wrestle with me all your life.”
“Now Adam,” I AM said, “As for you,
I can tell that you ate the fruit too.
Now you must build a house
And provide for your spouse.
For I speak not in ‘should be’ but ‘do’.”
When that Serpent practiced to deceive,
His lies changed the perceptions of Eve.
After taking a bite,
How it poisoned her sight.
Her rebellion to this day we grieve.
Satan’s promise, when pondered, seems odd.
He said man could grow equal to God?
Only when we agree
To be lesser than He
Can we see that our own path is flawed.
Now in every man there grows a tree
Bearing knowledge of how things ‘should be’.
When we argue the plan
Given by the I AM
We reveal our fallen ancestry.
