Say Lady , it's hard to believe
With this serpent tugging my sleeve
Saying " head for the chapel
Here's a nice juicy apple
Ring her bell , it's now New Years Eve " .
So , Sweet Rib , what is your name ?
" I'm your Eve , with no in-laws to blame .
So , well done my boy
Lets go forth .... multiply.
But , that fig leaf's too small for your shame ".
It's a biblical thing , not a fable
As our sons sat around our new table
Each others bad nemesis
Listening to Genesis
Discovering Cain wasn't " able " .
Our Garden Of Eden was class
As it shimmered with silver and brass .
But the Lord said " lets go .
Here's a rake and a hoe .
Clear the weeds , and that snake from the grass ".
Dedicated to my 2 favorite Eves : Christmas & New Years ..
