THE SIN - Eight word challenge-4
1. CELESTIAL 2. BESMIRCH 3. PINION 4. THROES 5. SOJOURN 6. LISSOME 7. FIRMAMENT 8. REPOSE.
HE had just completed the FIRMAMENT
and everything CELESTIAL;
the vegetational implements
and the living things, bestial --
When sneaked up the creature most LISSOME
in a skin so utterly handsome
To entice the first humans to eat fruit forbidden.
Then, Adam and Eve, deep in the THROES
of their grave sin, could no more REPOSE
in the Garden that was Eden
And were summarily sent forth
to SOJOURN the vast Earth.
And the snake, justly BESMIRCHED,
was thereafter PINIONED to turf!
