One Day in Eden

Fatima was always dressed up fittingly as any occasion called for Today one might call her a performance artist but she was A hippie and child of God always good for some drama though Was not taken seriously in the reviews in the Paradise Gazette All she wanted was to be seen as playful serene and sophisticated First thing it were dates that started the show in the garden And she had never performed in the nude let alone seduced She played Hamlet and Noah Mephistopheles and Juliet Let her hair down to climb down from Babylonian towers Her repertoire was enormous and to her chagrin so was her bust ‘They always look at my bosom and never hear a word that I say Fake voyeuristic news and when things go wrong I get the blame’ She was made for the stage in the Big Apple not dated palms’ Tried olives but they were too small and peaches far too symbolic Bananas were phallic and there was no couch in the garden ‘Fatima at her best again a gorgeous woman with forbidden fruit But she covers up and her sidekick Mohamed bears the cost She must reveal more of her natural talent and not hide her loins’ Her mountain quivered in disgust of the lecherous media and Pressed for fame she developed a different plot with a twist ‘Mohamed let’s be traditional and awaken the punters with apples We could juggle and whenever we drop one we’ll take off some clothes The last one with fancy knickers gets to skin the snake as a prize' High into sensational air they went but could not catch the globes It was not divine as such but they created the first nudist camp Once all garments were ripped off the good Lord smiled as they pleased History must not be falsified and the legend carried on for millennia Evangelists spread the message and facebook has millions of hits Finally the audience got a full un-redacted view of naked scripture Fatima was a transgender man and the serpent had a pearl for an oyster 01st Agust 2019

Kai, congratulations on your Honorable Mention Win in the Invitation to Play contest. I enjoyed the Fatima the drama queen and the unexpected twist at the end. There were so many good poems that it got down to a just thanks standoff.
