I, Adam …

~*Marge Tindal*~


I, Adam, take this time
to pen an apology through the rhyme
to all the Eves of the land
for these years of misunderstand~

It is I that should wear the blame
for the apple-biting escapade
Truth was that I just could not resist
so, I blamed the one who granted me
years of life in tasty bliss~

Eve got a raw deal throughout history
But truth is … she didn’t force-feed me
Of the apple I freely partook
then quickly blamed her
for the temptation of the fruit of the tree
What in Eden was wrong with me?

I was being merely man
so sorry for the misunderstand~

~*~

I, Eve, as I usually do,
forgive as He has asked us to
But one thing more should be understood
Next time, Adam, do not cast the blame
on one who wears this lady’s name
For, my dear, if you should try
to again cast the blame on me
you will find out what He meant
"a tooth for a tooth"
"an eye for an eye"


Let there be no misunderstand
I know that you are merely ... man
I was thinking of how you could make it up to me
my mind's in a swirl ... yet I was sure you'd agree
(How's about you get to give childbirth next time?)

But, now that I think about it
and you've so readily apologized
Two miracles in the same week ?
Nah, that ain't gonna happen~

Big Smiles.

Oh I love this one.  You are quite the Eve to get Adam to morgify into this gentler, kinder more truthful sort.  Good job.  Love, Joyce

This is fun! Though God only gives us no mor than we can handle....perhaps men can't handle childbirth? lol

I hope someday you get the chance to live like you were dying....

Most likely I don't need to tell you all ...
but will anyhow ...
I am living proof that the Lord of my knowing has a marvelous sense of humor to allow me to word-play in the garden~

And, LightHouseBob ... you are the greatest of MEN ... to come in and admit you read it and liked it~

To all my 'sister Eves' ... thank you~

*Huglets*
