Mother and Father
we all had two,
grandmas and grandpas
we can name quite a few.
The immediate and the greats,
the great, greats, and the great great greats,
these, believe me
are quite a crew.
Of course these aren't all,
there are more of them than I can recall.
We could research back to Adam and Eve,
you remember those two
whom the serpent deceived.
He came upon our fore-parent Eve,
then challenged her
to eat the forbidden fruit.
She ate; then gave to Adam
who then realized his nakedness
and sewed for himself a fig-leaf suit.
The fig leaves he sewed
weren't too strong,
Adam immediately suspected
that he had done wrong.
God walked in the cool of the evening
throughout the entire garden,
after calling out to Adam
whom He gave no immediate pardon.
God already knew what the serpent had done.
God said in sorrow that Eve would conceive;
then bare a son.
