“…and God saw that Adam was lonely.
So he put him to sleep and took one of his ribs
then formed it into the first woman named Eve,
so that Adam will have a companion.”
– fr. the Book of Genesis, The Holy Bible
(We men obey what women say.
Women pray when we men play.)
what hex does woman wield
that man should woe and wince
notwithstanding her fickleness?
why must valiant man yield
timid as forlorn prince
to her callous capriciousness?
oh, woman from man’s grid
you have reviled man since
an Eden’s Eve became temptress!
blight and delight
faithful and unfaithful
enticement and inducement.
