A poem about Adam and Eve and, well, global warming too!

We’re eating the apple – and we’re going to destroy what should be paradise.

I’m probably right in assuming,

The most people never believed,

There was ever a Garden of Eden

Or a couple called Adam and Eve.

It’s not really credible is it?

In fact, it just doesn’t compute

That the guy lost his paradise garden

Just because he ate one piece of fruit.

Fair enough he was told that he couldn’t

He was told eating apples was banned

But the guy just gave into temptation

Sure the apple was growing on his land.

So the Adam and Eve stuff is nonsense

It’s a story, that’s all, nothing more

It’s a fairy tale, fiction, a fable,

And best if it’s simply ignored.

Only, well, have a look at our planet

It’s currently not in great nick

Our climate is pretty well ruined

And millions of people are sick.

If you think about what our earth looked like

Before human beings arrived

It had blue skies and crystal clear oceans

And nature and animals thrived.

There was one rule for mankind to follow

One rule for the whole human race

And this was it – it’s so very simple:

We were tasked to look after the place

But obviously that was beyond us

So we pumped filth into clean air

Now some people are trying to fix it

While others are turning to prayer

You see, Adam had just one instruction

He didn’t obey – so he lost

We too only had to do one thing

We didn’t and we’re now paying the cost

So maybe there wasn’t an Adam

And there probably wasn’t an Eve

But their story can teach us a lesson

And maybe we’ll get a reprieve

We were given a Garden of Eden

We destroyed it because of our greed

We haven’t much time left to save it

Let’s hope and let’s pray we succeed.
