Conversing with Sin

Conversing with Sin

Who are you? I’m Adam, I make bad things happen

Why is that? Cos I’m one of two people, I’m the breeder of shame

What is shame? It’s a seed that is planted like a tree

Does it grow? Yes, quickly; be careful or fall low

Who am I? I’m a snake, my name is Eve and I deceive

Do you steal? Yes apples, from this tree next to me

What’s the tree? It’s knowledge, but give me some relief

Why is that? Cos I’m guilty, I make other people lean

Lean on what? On God, and this man is very mean

What are you like? I’m like you, and we will both find

We can populate the planet, which will then decline

Are you for real? Or is this, a very cunning plan

To get me into bed? but yeah, you can!

Conversing with Sin, and conversing with him

Is conversing with her, the exact same thing

Hello, Michael,
Interesting take on Adam, Eve, and sin. You've given a lot to think about with a very unique poetic approach.
Thank you,
Lavender
