He'd seen her face a hundred times before,
but now 'twas different, of that he was sure!
Her eyes were afire, her lips were blood red.
The fruit in her hand: "Eat some," she said.
"For look I was blind. Behold, now I see!
The fruit doth taste well, now harken to me.
The earth is our home, it's ours to explore.
We'll experience it now like never before!"
He gazed at the fruit, then looked up at her.
He felt somewhat flushed, his blood was astir.
That body! That face! He wanted her so!
He snatched at the fruit, he'd give it a go!
The rest, as they say, is history now.
For six-thousand years we've suffered, and how!
If only he'd listened to the ONE who was true,
life would be so sweet, for me and for you.
