Adam’s Rib

To begin with,

I’d like to bust the myth,

The veritably flagrant fib,

That I was made from Adam’s rib.

Who came first? I hear you beg,

The chicken Adam or Eve the egg?

Another story with which I grapple,

Is the one about the forbidden apple:

Adam begged me to climb the tree;

He was too fearful (and cowardly)

That he would fall or be discovered.

Now that my story’s been uncovered,

I’d like to put the record straight:

Is the Creator a man? She ain’t.
