A serpent, disguised as a girl,
went to school
with the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil
in her back pack.
She was gonna share it with her boyfriend,
but the teachers found it, ate the fruit first
and taught this knowledge to all their students
year after year after year.
Everyone believed in these teachings
but everyone forgot this knowledge
came from a serpent,
metaphorical though it was.
It wasn’t long before
the teachers had killed all the snakes;
they had no choice, they said.
