Dawn Of The Rat Race

In Eden's garden long ago a second story's to be told. First when Eve took her bite and Adam fled in such a fright. But on the ground watching by two creatures suddenly did spy. A chance to taste what's forbidden and none see for they'd be hidden. Quickly ran these two to eat, digging in with sharp front teeth. But suddenly the sky grew dark God calling out loudly, “Hark!” “You two eat, I clearly see, fruit from the forbidden tree.” “You are not allowed to stay, Cast out to scratch a life each day.” Picking them up with gentle hands, He released them past Eden's land. “But this promise you will see, Man amply take care of your needs."
