First Sin

First of all, Eve took a bite.
Then Adam tried the delight.
   The serpents plot.
Adam knew it was not right,
before he took that long plight.
   The serpents shot.
Bible says God came that night,
they were hidden out of sight.
   Repenting not.
God called and they answered, "What?
We are naked on this lot."
   "Who told you that?"
"When we ate the fruit we got
our eyes opened on the spot."
   So there they sat.
Beside a fire so hot
with food cooking in a pot.
   Gone diplomat.
"Leave this garden habitat
there is no more welcome mat."
   They had to leave.
Punishment would be no pat.
Adam toiled without a spat.
   How they did grieve.
In the evenings they would chat
about their past garden flat.
   Now they believe!
