Old Adam In His Eden - Poem by David McLansky

She fell while gardening
In the yard,
And came before
The Throne of God: ;
'You kneel before me
As rehearsed,
You who've beat
And stormed,
And cursed;
You, a screaming
Typhoon and savage,
Who got your way
By rage and ravage;
And now you bow
So penitent,
Humble, devout
And quaking bent;
When in your wrath
Did you relent;
Recall yourself
In this event?
Your jealous rage
Knew no quarter,
You terrorized
Both son and daughter;
You tried to break
Your husband's will,
You made his life
A living Hell;
And now you eyes
Are filled with tears,
You huddle now in judgment fear;
As if this false
And humble pride
Will wash away your
Sins denied;
You who lived to terroize,
Who bragged and stormed
With savage pride,
Forgiveness will now
Be denied;
Go now to Hell
Oh Satan's Bride.
