Garden Of Eden - Poem by Tony Adah

No one knew the colour of Adam
Or that of his wife, Eve
Twosome forerunners of the world

Unlike ours their breath was pure
Until they ate of the forbidden fruit
And brought us discrimination, woes and wars
With them were roses, tulips, lilies and clover
Doves, pigeons, giraffes and their king in
White, black, blue, red and all hues

If the garden was one
Then the world must be one
Be us greeks, jews or gentiles
But guile sings
Into the gullible world
And we are what we are
A mystery to ourselves.
