A Cursed Serpent

BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE THiS, UPON YOUR BELLY YOU SHALL CRAWl

  • It was a beautiful creature
    But became corrupt

  • “Because you have done this,
    Upon your belly you must
    Crawl, of the earth eating its
    Dust

  • Looking back one more time
    Adam and Eve wept, on that
    Very day the gates were shut

    Naming him Seth, for God
    Gave a seed of comfort,
    Instead of the seed of Cain,
    Who murdered her son…
