Enter Sin - Poem by Jacob Courtney
A long time ago there was a man who was
All alone. He walked from tree to tree bush to
Bush stream to stream but no where was there
Another like he. Yes there were many who
Walked on all fours or swung in the trees and
Even those that fly high in the sky yet there
Was still nothing like he. He began to sigh
From time to time as the days went on by.
Then a day came to be where the man slept
So deep for God took a rib so meek. Out
He came from the other side for God made
A woman so devine. To where she can be
He said don't eat from this one tree. A day
Came to pass a serpent was in the grass.
Quietly he began to plea the woman began
To glee for this tree is meant to be. A bite to
Take a sin to make. A woman said unto
Man come bite surely it will delight. So both
Enjoyed where they were destroyed. Together
They hid for they had sinned. God so ashamed
Wanted to know who was to blame. A Serpent
Became such a blight even he fled from the light.
Forever the snake must pay for satan made
It this way. Beast slain for man as they was drove
From a perfect land the garden so grand. So
Comes the fall of man.
