Too bad

Too bad Adam didn't have a mother
or a sister, a neighbor, a friend, enemy,
or even just a guy he didn't know but waved at anyway.
Adam dealt with what he did have which was Eve.
Too bad for Eve, too. She didn't have a father.
She had Adam's rib, though, at least that was something.
Adam thought Eve was pretty and he liked the idea
of someone who'd feed him.
Eve thought Adam was not too bad lookin' his own self...
and he DID have a way with words
(giraffe made her laugh)
!!!  like really hard  !!!  like sometimes she had to run to a corner of Eden to pee !!!
Stuff didn't always go great for them, but they loved eachother.
