Theology: a poem


No, the serpent did not
Seduce Eve to the apple.
All that’s simply
Corruption of the facts.

Adam ate the apple.
Eve ate Adam.
The serpent ate Eve.
This is the dark intestine.

The serpent, meanwhile,
Sleeps his meal off in Paradise –
Smiling to hear
God’s querulous calling.

- Ted Hughes, 1967

Five points for each link to other pictures of Jenolan caves on this blog. No more than one link per person.
