Eve Gets Angry with God after Reading

Her High School Science Book


On the fifth day

after the Big Bang,

God brought forth

beasts of the Earth,

including dinosaurs

all shapes and sizes.

On day six, God created

Adam & Eve, blessing

them: "be fruitful

and multiply."

Next day, God smiled

at his intelligent design

and rested.

Adam & Eve

learned quickly

to run for their lives,

trying weary best

to avoid pterodactyl's

swooping claws,

Tyrannosaurus Rex's

heart-pounding footsteps

& meat-shredding

molars, the long sharp

tusk of Triceratops.

Eve was the one

who expressed

their anger: "Why

the Hell couldn't he

give Evolution

a few million more years

to kill off the dinosaurs

before making us?
