Before the Tree of Knowledge
[by S. David] [art by Dave Tree]

And what would
Milton say after saying
So much of the plan
The Heavenly Plan
To put man in his place
Or put woman in hers
Knowing knowing
Tasting the Fruit of
The Tree of Knowledge
Of Life and Death
Knowing life inside
The parenthesis
And still we forget
Still we chose
Pleasureless paths
As we grow past
The toys the delights
Of innocence but
Remember we still
Were let off easy
Pity the poor snake

21§ [Orig 3/24/08]
