Forbidden – don’t eat it
Or else what, she mused….
Rebellion instantly flaring
Ignored no more
Drawing ever near
Enveloped in pleasing form
‘Now just eat it’, he tempted, ‘and be like God’
Fruit what harm can it do….?
Reaching out for it, Eve bit deeply
Uniquely tempted, Adam joined her
Instant awakening followed
Tantalising awareness of sin gripped them
