Lillith of the Darkness

Lillith is the legendary first wife of Adam, who escaped Eden using the ineffable name of God. She is said to be a demon since that takes babies in their first week or so. With the rise of abortion being promoted as a feminist principle to defy the rule of men, we wonder should Lillith be the patron of abortions too? As with modern feminist anger at misogeny and the use of abortion as a tool to stop the sexual and personal control of women by controlling men, we wonder if men were not fitting that role in the past centuries would we have such a controvesy now, and if Adam had been kinder on the first night would Lillith not have stayed with him?

Lilly of the darkness hours!,
Protect all newborns from she
Who flies to strangle or to take
Those who of their first week be…

Demon mother of the skies
Children from her: God taken
Seeks revenge on all mankind
Whose infants will not waken
From their innocent slumbers
She steals their souls in their sleep:
Lord, on the them have mercy
Safe from Lillith, infants keep!

But Lillith, hungrier, yet more evil now
From the womb rips them before first breath
This is the dawn of the modern age
When wits and will against each other set.

Could Adam back on their first night
Not have ceded the respect but it not share?
The pride of man is equal to rage of woman in sin
In the suffering it causes to all others there…
