If this world ends and Adam and Eve are born again.
ADAM AND EVE: award winner


If one day life ends on earth,
Followed by a cold night,
And, after eons there is,
Again, a ray of light,

Will He forgive man for his
Having destroyed the earth,
Through pollution and the nukes,
Of which he had no dearth?

Will humans be there again?
Will God make an Adam?
Will He, in His wisdom, Eve,
From Adam’s rib fathom?

Will He create woman to
Live in the man’s shadow?
Of her subjugation, will
He have a repeat show?

If God creates them, at all,
Then truly I believe:
He will ensure Adam is
Made from the rib of Eve.
