Damn You, Adam

 
Adam’s Garden yeilds a tree Grown from the roots of Hell Rare Forbidden fragrant fruit On golden branches; Rapture fell But Adam stepped one fig away From Satan’s dying Curse This world remained a Paradise And Eve escaped the pain of birth! No ghastly storms for Noah With Arc afloat in driven rains No frantic fear of drowning Forty nights and some odd days Cain would not slay Abel No Tower found in Babel Seeds of Life were never planted Generations never born No Sins in need of repentance Nor Judgment days in Heaven To receive their final sentence The highest price was paid For Adam's abstinence
Contest - Reinvent, Reimagine, Revamp by Just That Archaic Poet Inspired by his poem - Damn You, Eve

    I think Eve is the be-damned because she ate of the apple first. Regardless we are born sinners, forgiven by the blood of Christ. This is a most unusual poem, but written with class. You are and outstanding poet and this poem proves it. Good Job.
