Eve’s Lament

I’ll take the blame, OK? Relax. I will.

I ate the apple from that bloody tree.

But don’t get in my face all loud and shrill

The reason at the time made sense to me.

You’ve heard that I was made from Adam’s rib

I thought that meant that I was his first wife

And then I heard that story was a fib

Some broad named Lilith had once shared his life.

I needed knowledge! Where was I to go?

The Tree of Good and Evil! it would tell!

What’s up with Lilith? What else should I know?

To live in ignorance, I feel, is hell.

And so I took a deep and juicy bite.

And all I learned is I am not too bright.
