KANE & ABEL


What went down between Abel and Kane,
I cannot explain,
Neither can I understand the pain,
Of living knowing that by his hand his brother was slain,
But did Kane know that man could die?
If he did then how and why?
Since no man had ever died before,
Yet still if he did, I really need to know,
Would he have done the same,
I mean have the first homicide to his name?
Maybe my reasoning is lame,
But maybe his lack of knowledge,
Pushed him over the edge,
And had him act in jealousy rage and hate…
Did he know for one moment think of his own fate?
Did he count on God’s reaction,
To be the consequence of his action?
Without prejudice I ask which is worse:
To be the first man to die, or:
To be the first man to receive God’s Curse.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
