Eye for an Eye

Eye for an Eye!


He pats her with his fingertips.

She soothes him with velvet lips.

He gives less, she gives more;

These are the terms of their relationship.

She takes him to the shore …

He yearns for sailing on a new trip,

Willing to drown with a whore.

This is only and simply being fair

In Adam’s perfect particular law.

So let us not feel depressed or in despair

When Eve gives love while Adam makes her a snare,

Or when she faithfully crowns him with mild care,

While he snatches her back with deception’s claws,

Cause this is only a minor flaw in Adam’s perfect law.
