Sometime I think if I were Eve,
I would’ve done something different
other than to be led astray . . .
by that slimy, slithering, lying serpent.
I would’ve given it more thought,
about having all that knowledge
since what I know about the world
I’m not too proud to acknowledge.
I would’ve given it more reflection,
a garden that was abundantly lush
or this one that is filled with smut
crawling in greed, pride and lust.
You see I really don’t like apples,
or fruit of any kind . . .
and I don’t think I would have let
Satan slither his way into my mind.
But, then I do love vegetables,
chicken, pork and beef . . .
and who knows if I was offered them
if I would have given satan any grief.
I guess the moral of my dilemma,
is satin knows just how to tempt you
be it a fruit on a tree . . .
or a juicy burger on the barbecue.
So be very careful,
this slimy, slithering, lying snake
will offer you anything . . .
so from Jesus your soul ~ he can take!
King James Version
“And the woman said unto the serpent, We
may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:”
Deborah Ann Belka
