Paradise Lost : The Great Divide

Ron Pleune's avatar Ron Pleune

"Man gives in to serpent and tree - enlightened mind and new eyes to see - to be a god and get his due - left with a curse, his decision to rue - causing thus a great divide - paradise lost, on the wrong side - flesh wastes and dies until it's dead - strife filled life with longing and dread - serpent afflicted, once beautifully born - tree and leaf give way to thorn - fog and dust, rocks cry out - until set right beyond a doubt - tho' paradise lost, not alone - savior comes to silence stone - cross the great divide and bring man home - restore forever and sit on throne."
