Eve Of Destruction

It's time to listen to me, Adam,
I have something to say
I know that you are angry,
that "you" didn't get your way.

When I was put beside you,
it meant you had to share.
You think I stole your rib bone
and were jealous of my hair.

I have to admit that it was you,
who gave me, my name
as for the apple," thanks a lot".
It's time you took the blame.

It's true enough that Eve
may have been, only "JANE"
her, "TARZAN" had the muscle
but she had the brain.

The serpent lost his legs,
so, he slithered his way out.
You wanted a XXXXL fig leaf?
It didn't fit so you had to pout.

I have to confess that I 
don't indulge in sweets 
but, this contest was delicious
and filled with graphic treats.

In response to Larry Belts Eve

    VERY clever, Karla!! You gave Larry a taste of the apple and threw it back into his court for him to defend his words. Excellent! Your poem should do very well in the contest and you paired your response to the work of a great Souper. Love, Carolyn
