Was The Apple So Red? - Poem by Patti Masterman

Was the apple so red and fragrant,
That none could resist its lure;
Or was it the bane of ignorance,
Which only one bite could cure?

Was Adam the victim of Eve,
And was Eve the patsy of snakes?
In the intricate world of mankind,
The Eve's are the price, of partaking.

Now nakedness is our undoing,
It's crime to be seen in the streets;
And but for that first bitten apple,
All shame and passion's impeached.

And but for that first bitten apple,
God had stayed inside the man;
Possessed both, of singular purpose-
Who knows what futures they spanned?
