Some Of Eve's Words, Regarding Adam's Remarks

Expelled from Eden, shown right to the doors,

we blamed---of course---that damned snake in the grass;

but I think Adam mixed his metaphors

when he described it as. "That horse's ass."



Author's Notes/Comments: 

The expletive in the second line is a theological observation; the devil, and those who invite him to indwell them (no names mentioned here), will be damned.  The second line also contains an allusion to Vergil's Third Eclogue.
