A Sopranos Shakespeare Eden

Adam, my Adam prithee 
answer my plea
Will you join me in savoring 
fruits of yon tree
Eve always cool as home made 
Why mess with the bosses' 
one sacred rule

Adam don't accuse me of 
protesting too much
But a kingdom for an apple 
sounds easy enough
Eve there's a lot for us both to 
Like taking advice from one 
prone to slither. 

Adam doth these leaves make 
my lithe form look fat
Eve they cover all the best 
pieces, wad up wit dat?  
Adam thy visage is a Tempest 
of gloom 
Eve I fear we screwed up 
bada-bing bada-boom.  

Adam everything seems 
different betwixt thou and me
Since we ate of the fruit of 
that forbidden tree. 
Twas the promise of equal 
footing Adam forsooth
Eve that snaky rat bastard 
wasn't telling the truth

Jan, I was truly Jadazzled by this impish, mischevious yet insightful write. Like everything in life, there was more to those Bronte girls than met the eye. More than anything else I miss the irreverent sense of humor from home, so thank you for filling that void.

Oh Joe I so agree. i try and have some humour in most of my writes. Please also drop by jadazzle united - i write with another poet Darren Watson - we share a similar humour - check out our 'first meeting in the isle of man poem' and a few others you may enjoy them hugs Jan xx
