Forbidden Fruit

Found himself standing close to the forbidden tree, staring.
The voice says, "just a touch! that's not much"
Not too late, pay no heed, leave the scene.

Forbidden fruit looks very edible.
He has one in hand.
Voice says, "why do you hesitate. Just a bite. It's your right"
It's not too late. Drop it and flee.
Sure, it's your right but is it RIGHT?

Too late, Sire. Can't you see my Adam's apple?
It was just one bite.
Voice says, "sew designer fig leaves to cover up and flee"
Please don't leave me. I can restore you to Eden.
Don't cover up. I made things right before the earth's foundation.
I still love you.
