Oh! I am sorry! Did you mistake me for A Daughter of Eve? Did you presume I came From your rib, Adam, When I was made even before your Soil was created? Made before the war between us Was fated to set the snake Between an Adam and an Eve? The stuff of the Universe Was the cradle of my birth, But then, the Big Guy Decided to pass me on To you, you see. Did you guess I was made To lay below you? A cow? Receiving Deceived, and yet not Fit for the deceiving? Oh! I apologize...sssssss...... Were you expecting to Take the sweetest piece Of meat from the table Before I even took a bite? Were you looking With your dirty sight In lust and dominion Towards me? Were you waiting for me to sit Upon? A Goddess at your feet? Under your weight? A quiet soul to teach? Did you presume I didn't even have Wings you must seek To clip To have a hope of controlling Me, And that goblet from Which you sip Was made for your Lips only, When my mouth desired The same wine The same grain? Adam's sorrow. Man's shame. How disconcerting for you When you realized I did not Only step upon the sand, but That the grains of time Ran through my hands! Honey, I could teach you A thing Or two About how And where And what And who. Here, take a bite! You who follows Instead of leading The way. You who kneels To the Master To pray! Oh! I hate to disappoint But I fear you will Self anoint And claim for yourself What is mine. Here! Have a sign. Hang it from the tree It says Baby, there never was A chance of a 'You and A Me.' So! Oh! I must insist you Take your filthy Muddy mitts Off my sisters: Even the dull Eve And her obedient Created lack of Dignity. Even the little ones Made from the same Stuff as you If not the same As me... And keep them to Yourself: Soiled and earth bound Mud-Cake-Man Just a big sound.. Just a cog in the plan. Not fit to to sit! Nor even touch me. And Adam, seeing She was strong Turned his back and tried To flee back home, But the gates to the Garden Were gone! And the mud raised up in the shape of man, turned back to dust, and Lilith ran .....and ran and ran..
