Adam And Eve And The Fig Leaves

Here's something I have been wondering For so very long If Adam and Eve wore only figs leaves How did they keep them on It couldn't have been a rubber band And certainly not super glue I just really have no idea Do you have a clue What did they do in the winter When fig trees are bare One leaf wouldn't last all year I think there's a mystery there If only Eve hadn't eaten that apple If only Adam hadn't taken a bite I wouldn't be trying to solve this And I'd sleep better at night

AHA, BUT you would not sleep better becuase you would not BE in existence. They had to eat that apple in order to know life and to propogate the species. I think this was really cute and clever. Congratulations!
