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.
