The fallibility of man
if not swift is certainly felt
outside of Eden's garden-land
where original sin's hand was dealt
and snake-eyes rolled his loaded dice.
Forbidden fruit was tasted twice
through Eve's bite shared with Adam's lips.
Ashamed, they each donned leaves a-trice
for Eve, once to gird Adam's hips.
Progenitors of all nations hence,
violated God's Eden gift,
salvation lost, no recompence,
'till Jesus' Resurrection lift.
