Inspired by and dedicated to Frank
Under the old tree of knowledge,
Adam and Eve shared their pure dreams,
Holding each other as they fell asleep,
The cold, humid scales of the serpent
and its corrupting, poisonous whispers
- - out of their mind.
A sudden echo broke into the silence
Chaining their sin in the middle of things
A fatal ignorance had sealed their fortune
- - changing everything .
The appointed angels remained silent
Knowin’ their hearts , they could only expect,
With the divine muses sent out of Eden
Falling into the vicious, evil temptation
- - would be their fate.
The sight of the new garden, of permitted fruit,
Left them both feeling lost and abandoned-
The holy light turned off, casting their shadows
- in a void of darkness.
Had they been aware of the cruel testing
And shared their premonitions of the fall
Their undeserved, merciless punishment
- - would still be ignored.
