Adam's Apple Of His Eye .

 Say Lady , it's hard to believe
 With this serpent tugging my sleeve
 Saying " head for the chapel
 Here's a nice juicy apple
 Ring her bell , it's now New Years Eve " .

 So , Sweet Rib , what is your name ?
 " I'm your Eve , with no in-laws to blame .
 So , well done my boy
 Lets go forth .... multiply.
 But , that fig leaf's too small for your shame ".

 It's a biblical thing , not a fable
 As our sons sat around our new table
 Each others bad nemesis
 Listening to Genesis
 Discovering Cain wasn't " able " .

 Our Garden Of Eden was class
 As it shimmered with silver and brass .
 But the Lord said " lets go .
 Here's a rake and a hoe .
 Clear the weeds , and that snake from the grass ".



Dedicated to my 2 favorite Eves : Christmas & New Years ..
