What Say You
I pose this question with curiosity:
Was Adam created with a nationality?
Some scholars believe he was Jewish
but surely that’s a purely biased wish.
Still others have also theorized
he must also have been circumcized.
Yet not a verse has been found within
the Book proving God cut off his skin?
My own opinion, and I’m not pious,
is based on experience, so I’m biased.
Adam, then, as with everyone after him,
was created as an earthly human –
with no life and death allegiance to any
flag or country, but God exclusively.
And if you’re the type who loudly toots
and shouts the origin of his proud roots
keep in mind all bragging rights, though lawful,
are by others disparaged and judged awful.
