Edens fools

damn those first apple pickers! 

those disallowed tasters 

those unknowing inventors

of the original sin starting blocks

from which humanity set off 

most trying to outrace the other 

as they did from the first day

and do now


yes, the race continues 

but do the runners all have

the same versions of victory in their minds

and will the finishing line

ever be crossed by the real winners?

◄ an opinion for consideration

Hi Rose

An interesting poem. Whatever you believe in, it raises questions about behaviour and the human condition.

I love this poem, Rose! I adore the simplicity of the poem structure and the philosophical content. The last line almost screams out
