Quotable Poe Week Two-M. Brazfield

God and serpent’s urgent staff meeting


hey i have been crazy

insane raving mad

for a very long time

lunacy in my heart

mind untouched

by Your lamentations

free will i heard You say

i hid behind the tree

to bring down Your precious creation


he fell for it with ease

the girl well the girl

what can i say mere little rib

it really wasn’t her fault

the fruit forbidden

say it so

c’mon i know

it wasn’t really wrong

was it

not at all

no You just wanted

quiet little baa baa sheep

now about the girl

perhaps You were a bit

too swift

in punishing the children

wasn’t a life long

union with the that lad You made enough

a violet fig leaf cloak was that all

that he could muster

in Your image but not Your cunning

oh ho ho i beg to differ

the girl she knew before she bit the fruit

that she would know almost as much as You

and that her offspring would be Queens

and through the 7th bloodline

have eternal life

however there have been some complications

with the plan

of how it’d be

You did say

life would be a painful liability

but through the vastness of our

house the sky so filled with stars

and in the heart

of every meat made son and daughter

a darkness deep and raw

the tablets floods covenants plagues or lords

vaticans dinosaurs holocausts or even Roman laws

have failed to temper down

their self destruction

there’s a global mass malfunction

with a mid speed hell stung death of spirit

the streets of the Garden are strewn

    Love the whole theme of the Garden of Eden and temptation but particularly the above….and let’s not forget the great title you started with…setting the scene.
