God created man, and when that task was done
God said "I should give him something with which he can have fun
I know I gave him Eve, but he should have something cuter…”
And in his infinite wisdom, God gave man the computer.

Now man was quite excited as he played with his new toy
But soon he learned the headaches far outweighed the joy
And now it's not unusual to see man beat his chest and gasp
"I wish I were back in Eden, with the apple and the asp!"

Presented for the challenge at dVerse Poets Pub to create something in common meter.   I dearly love the cadence of rhyming poetry, and am only just beginning to appreciate open verse.


  1. Delightful! I also think the word "asp" sounds better than "snake" especially if one is going to be talking about an "apple" as well.

  2. This is a fun and creative take on the first couple in the garden ~ I was smiling until the end ~

    Nicet to meet you Beverly.

  3. Oh I do prefer an Eve and apple.

  4. I think we're all hating the computer nowadays 😁
