Eve, Oh Eve

Rating: 3.5
Why wouldn't Eve have eaten of the fruit?
Didn't she have a hand to reach out with,
Fingers with which to make a fist?
Didn't Eve have a stomach for feeling hunger,
A tongue for feeling thirst,
A heart with which to love?

Well, then, why wouldn't Eve have eaten of the fruit?
Why would she merely have suppressed her wishes,
Regulated her steps,
Subdued her thirst?

A voice of protest on behalf of all women who have been subjected to persecution by the society for centuries and treated like a second class citizen. It bears the stamp of Taslima Nasrin. Thanks.

Excellent thought out of the box, fruits are to be eaten, aren't they? It was the beginning of a supreme but new species on earth, the fruit gives seeds of birth. What a catastrophe for the other species! Thank you for sharing, Taslima. Palitha Ranatunge. Palitha Ranatunge.

Poetry is not so easy a thing. It is not only violating the tradition. It is an art based on truth and beauty. Your poem exposes your stupidity, your ignorance and poverty.
