The devil's nephew, it was said, came to earth
And made his bed with humans, long ago.

    yet a superb write of impeccable grace by bewitching depiction that swoons the breath to know more, from where it starts the cocept of today`s Recombinant DNA Technology, yet a abberation when abused, wrought ingenious by the imagery, wellpenned,10++++, thanks for sharing

    Beautiful and powerful. I read this transfixed with foreboding; its logical conclusion was as ominous as one would fear and expect.

    Genisis Renaissance, indeed, Fay....a brilliant interpretation of The Origin of the Nephilim....In fact, tho' King James architected a most comprehensive adaptation...i must confess, that your version is far less abstruse & (do i dare risk a sudden bolt of ethereally delivered lightening, by saying) , a might more intuiging...? ! Solid Penning, young lady!

    A modern reworking of a biblical myth
    a past attempt to explain the past.
    There are so many alternate myths of creation and prehistory who knows what is true
    I enjoyed the read though

    This is quite an outstanding poem, Fay, one that is inventive yet quite accurately characterizes the general meaning of the sixth chaper of Genesis. You quite deftly
    created a very effective summation of the lesson that chapter speaks about, clothing it in a language most readers could easily understand. Your conclusion of this interesting poem is quite brilliant, especially that final line, which certainly leaves the reader wondering. Carl.
