Adam On The Eve Of Knowing

Adam had just finished his corn flakes
Goat's milk and all

His briefcase was in his hand
Running late

He quick-pecked his wife
Dashed out the door of his cave and into the open air

Whereupon Eve
Knowing quite well it wasn't his birthday

Shouted in alarm
“Adam! You forgot to wear your fig leaf! ”

Hasn't quite finished chewing that mouthful from the apple yet! ? ? Bridging the ages cleverly. Funny and thought provoking authentic poetry.
Hahahahah! ! Very good stuff. Now, if Adam had a job in the 21st century, what do you think it would be? I'll look out for a poem on the subject from you soon! Hugs Anna xxx
What an original and novel idea.Adam eating cornflakes running late for work and forgets his fig leaf. Very imaginative of a poem. I really enjoy reading comedic poetry. This is a very, very good poem. Best regards-Mike Gale.
