The Lord looked down and saw man
The man who could not see
That he was naked as when born
And that neither was she.

And after eating the apple,
They saw, and to their shame
They hid from view as humans do
And gave as “Private Parts” their genitals name.

And God looked down in anger
For disobeying he did shout
Admonished and banished forever…
To the four winds cast them out…
