THE SECOND FALL
THE SECOND FALL!
Angels of lightening kneeled before Him flashing, “Everything is over!”
His look cast cusp of Cosmos, thundering across the change-over;
Adam in guilt hid his soul in Tree of life; Eve behind him hid her face;
Only Lucifer under the Knowledge Tree showed his face.
“Look!” Heavenly Atoms daunted as the Sundown morn
In fumes and fogs waned into night with moods of mourn;
“Alas! Alas! The creatures of clay with His breathing image,
In unbridled pursuit to conquer the cosmos ‘ve done this damage.”
Mountains lay scattered as dust over woods and land,
Oceans lay hidden inside heaps of mud and dunes of sand.
Life became a whispered secret of the extinct universe,
Read in classes only by cosmic cherubim, only in divine verse.
“Adam braced to conquer genetic mystery and lost Eden in fleeting coital ecstasy,
“His sons braced to conquer cosmic mystery and lost Globe in digital fantasy!
“It’s daunting,” heaven’s denizens opined, “it’s humanity’s indefinite, infinite fall!”
The great bard William would’ve exclaimed, “What a fall! What a fall!”
But the great puritan John would’ve claimed, “It’s indeed the second fall!”
