Alone - Poem by Adrian Taheny

When God created woman
In all her glorious splendor,
He ate spare ribs with Adam
And considered where to send her.

Great wisdom now was needed
And he delved down, ever deeper,
When Adam interrupted
And said shyly, 'Could I keep her? '

The Lord in all his mercy
Took pity on our sinner
And gave him Eve, the woman
To keep, when finished dinner.

For years she tended to him
As she nurtured every need,
His every wish delivered
She praised his every deed.

But then a voice inside her, said
' I'm more than just a rib ',
And Eve, against his wishes
began mooting, ' Women's Lib'

The movement gathered power
And our girl became outspoken,
The man began to sour
But the manly spell was broken.

Then soon he saw the error
That caused them both such loss,
He supported every effort
And gave up his role as, Boss.

Today they work together
To make better every way,
The world they both must live in
And grow richer every day.

Now somewhere up in Heaven
A man sits on a throne
And marvels at his earthlings
But finds himself, alone.

(Adrian Taheny ’96)
