The Apple of Eden

Juicy drops from crimson red

You beckon her and she seeks you

Caressing her lips, you stole her heart

But the slitherer she blames and not your looks


With you in hand and heart astray

She danced for him, seeking his face

Alas, her king fell, not for her, but for you

When they came round, the deed was done


Innocent hearts were no more


But man’s nature must assign blame

And his life’s mission is who to charge

The slitherer’s hiss or your juicy drops

The queen’s dance or the king’s lust
