Lament for Eve

I really think it’s very sad
No! Not just sad, extremely bad
That Eve alone was blamed for years
And women oft reduced to tears,
Because she boldly took the fruit
And ate it, when the serpent spoke.
The Hebrew scriptures make it clear
Adam was with her, standing near.
Do you think that thus she would have dared
Had he her lust not fully shared?
Poor Eve, condemned thenceforth to bear
Within herself the painful share
Of ordained consequence! Yet worse
By far what men then did.

Earth cursed via Adam wrought corruption,
Hard work, much sweat and life’s destruction.
‘Tis clear that God assigned the blame
To him, as much as her, by name.

Yet men forgot that he stood by.
Conveniently there came a lie:
Eve was the temptress, she alone
Ever and always must atone!

Three women smiling at the camera, each is holding a present.
