Paradise Lost A Recreation

Written by: Muneeb Tahir
O heavenly muse Urania meditate me
In one of the noblest cause
I am standing on your threshold
To jot down historical rise and fall
Though shyness and timidness do resist
With unshakeable determination, I persist
I am singing to my muse a hymn
Without giving him some bribe
It all begins when Satan was an Angel
And one of God's favorite
Then what made him damned to hell?
Because his arrogance was ringing a bell
He refused the commands of God
Seeking refuge in the shelter of revolt
I'll say he was wisely foolish
Better reign in hell than to serve heaven
He lost all of his noble status
I perceive he received poetic justice
But he was as stubborn as a mule
His wit was undoubtedly gathering wool
And there was his yes-man Beelzebub
Who thought hell to be a charming hub
He suggested corrupting the earth So might fall astray the coming births
Satan disguised himself as a serpent
To let down and pester the God's servant
And about the forbidden fruit, he already knew
His devilish mind did not chew
He glanced at Adam and Eve in heaven
Who were having some conversation
He saw them with his jaundiced eye
He could say sorry but didn't why?
When he tried to approach them
Gabriel came with his enormous wings
So, he fled away with sudden fright
Because with Gabriel might he couldn't fight
Raphael came later and about Satan warned
And told them how Satan would harm
One day he found Eve in solitude alone
He found the chance to egg her on
Satan insisted Eve on eating the apple
To have vast and knowledge ample
It all happened in Adam's absence Eve committed a serious sin
And to Satan, it brought a grin
God dismissed both from the paradise
They were sent to the earthly land
Soon Adam and Eve realized and repent
And back to heaven both they went
